Getting weather forecast...
Description50-60' tall 200' long west facing wall. Shade until noonish. Secluded area with a cool belay ledge. Great place to warm up for harder stuff. This cliff is a little dirty but has been cleaning up nicely with time. The cliff lies practically straight downhill from the Fast Food Wall a few hundred yards. There is a dirty fifth class scramble/solo around the right side of the cliff from the belay ledge if you want to setup TR. You can rappel from the live oak tree on the right side of the belay ledge to avoid having to downclimb the dirty fourth class approach with a pack when you leave.
No overnight camping on PG&E property Details
Noticed several tents while walking into the emeralds climbing area this last weekend ( 5/20/17 ). PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric) has posted several signs at the gate and other areas that state camping is NOT allowed. Please respect this so that access does not become an issue! Thanks in advance, Colby W.
Getting There2 approaches:
1-Hike past Steel Monkey travelling up-canyon on the east bank of the river for about 300 yards passing the gully trail (cairn) next to the Slide Wall area then cross a small talus field with a downed log. You will reach a small flat wooded area above the undermined east bank of the river. 4th class approach up to the wall marked with a cairn on the far left side of the cliff. The trail starts to deteriorate just before you spot the cairn.
2-Hike to Kudos. Just before you arrive at Kudos there is a large ponderosa pine on the right side of the trail. At this point break left (downhill) and follow stacked cairns down and right to the top of the cliff and rappel down to the belay ledge.
