Description

The area includes the slabbier region left of the Wart to the steeper area right behind the wart. Many of the routes are on the Beetle Bailey Slab, but some extend higher up, past the steeper overlap that bounds the slab.

Fun area to hang out in, particularly on hotter days as the base is shaded by large maples.

Getting There

For the shortest approach, park at turnout past LTW parking lot. Cross the tracks, then follow trail down and left to the wall. The Wart is an obvious big blob of rock on the right.
You can also park at the LTW lot or closer to town.
