Description

The main south facing wall, from the lower angled SE Buttress on the right to the steeper and darker wall on the left, a wide variety of easy to moderate climbs, trad, sport and mixed.

The first 5 routes at the far right end on the lower angled and lighter colored NE Buttress are easy yet fun sport routes (5.2 to 5.5), and a great place for practicing gear placements while on a bolt protected lead, although they may seem to have the bolts too widely spaced for a first lead by someone not solid at the grade. The first 3 share the same top chain anchors. The 4th and 5th share the same cold shut anchors.

Getting There

South face accessible from the west side most easily.
