Description

This is the steepest crag in piney. Prepare to get pumped! Southwest aspect provides a sunny crag that stays shaded until 1:00 in the summer. This crag is characterized by the large horizontal pocket lines that layer the wall and provide the huge jugs that everybody loves!

Getting There

From the Trailside Walls, continue trending up the hill along the cliff on a great but steep trail. After about 5 minutes, you will reach a flat spot where the trail eases up to switchbacks. Continue past the large Nautilus Boulder and up the hill. About 10-40 min of hiking from Trailside depending on your fitness.

Having climbed up here a handful of times, I applaud the crew (esp. Terry- RIP) who had the vision, put all the work into route development, the awesome trail, nicely plaquing things, etc...

That being said, I think the only thing keeping these routes from being four-star mega classic status is that the pockets, large and small, tend to have many sea urchiny, spiny spikes hanging out in them. Maybe I need to toughen up, but a little bit of comfortizing goes a long way guys and gals! It sucks when your skin (not fingertip skin mind you) gives way before your forearms! Still, fantastic area that I'll continue to spend a ton of time at.

Also- what is with the seemingly continual downgrading occurring on the plaques up here? Are the locals just spinning tons of laps on these pitches and thus, they start to feel easier and easier? I've climbed a lot of Bighorn dolomite all over the region, and a couple of the downgrades are laughable! Are you doing the Bob Scarpelli thing, giving a route the lowest grade you can while keeping a straight face?!

Minor musings on a kick ass area- keep up the good work! Nov 11, 2016

I think that is exactly what happened! The original grades on those plaques are right in my opinion. Nov 27, 2016

We reworked this page a little so that the cliffs are in order (1-7) as you approach them on the trail! I think it's a good thing that the page was getting messy, means new routes to play on! Enjoy! Aug 26, 2017
