DescriptionThis is the section of wall that runs from left to right when viewed from the climbing approach trail. It gets a lot of exposure and so is usually sketchy on early and late season days. There is steep ice on the left hand side, some more mellow routes in the middle of the wall to the right of a steep pillar that forms, and on the far right there is a steep headwall approx. 40 feet up a slab. At the right end of this headwall is a corner. To the right of the corner is more mixed climbing with a nice roof dominating the face. Far to the right of this wall there are more short cliffs (<20 feet) that form ice and which are broken by cracks.
Above this bottom wall are a series of shorter cliffs (~20 feet or so) that are scattered around the hillside. Some form ice, others are mixed lines.
All of the climbing in this area is top-ropeable.
Getting ThereAbout 5 min past the sign in box the summit trail passes a stone fire pit and crosses a small brook (barely runs in dry season). The trail to the climbing breaks left of the summit trail immediately on the other side of this brook. The trail is generally well traveled, but can be obscured by dense foliage or snow depending on the season. Sidewalk cafe is about 20-30 min down this trail depending on conditions.
