Description

Toothpick Wall is a clean and quiet area with about a dozen climbs. A trio of excellent cracks (Blueberry, Toothpick and Vertical Therapy) garner most of the attention. Very few climbs on the Toothpick Wall have fixed anchors though all are top-ropeable using adjacent trees and/or your own gear. This area also includes "Easy Street" with basically the same top access, which is great for beginners as it has short, easy routes. This area is divided from Mean Street to the south/left by the water drainage and a steep incline, and from Breakfast Cracks by another steep hillside which includes up-down access via the cave scramble.

Getting There

Look for the #2 marker. The most common way to access the Toothpick Wall is to build an anchor atop Blueberry Jam and rappel in. Alternately, you can come down the 'Emotional Rescue' scramble from the SE or drop down the cave descent from the NW. If neither of these approaches sound familiar you'll do well to just walk the base of the cliff from the far SE end (Silver Bullet Bluff area).
