DescriptionThis is the next section of wall upstream (left) of Princess Ella's Magic Adventure (PEMA). This is a distinct section of wall, so it deserves its own area, if nothing else this is a first attempt at organizing the Waterfall Wall area.
This wall consists of mostly awesome quartzite separated by diagonal ledge systems covered in death blocks. Fear not, it is mostly easy to avoid the chunder, and it will clean up with traffic.
The cliff faces E-NE so gets morning sun and is around 9500' feet. This is not a good place to be in the rain as this rock is dangerously slick when wet. Abundant potential remains for more routes.
When climbing here, be sure to have fun distracting the white knuckled drivers on the highway!
Getting ThereApproach as for Waterfall Wall to PEMA, but continue past its base 30 yards until you reach a fixed handline. Head straight up the hill above the handline aiming for a pine tree at the base of the rock about 150' above the river. Look for bolts, some with brown hangers, this is the start of Astro Zombies.
