Description

A major destination of the area. A complicated mixture of bolts and gear, with some that are purely one or the other. A low ledge system defines the top of the most popular climbs on the taller left side, while crack columns and technical/awkward face climbing define the smaller right side. Some of the best pure crack climbing at the Bluff are represented by Classic Crack, the overhang of Physical Graffiti, and the second pitch of Sheer Stress. On the other hand, some clip-up gems like the first pitch of Red Eye, the striking line of Critical Mass, and the short tricky Thai Stick provide a very different experience. With a little attention to detail, this wall will keep you coming back for more.

Getting There

Turn right once you meet the Hanging Gardens wall. The wall with the stretcher is the Red Wall.
