Description

Upper Snake Eyes Wall, a.k.a. Corners of the Sun, is a great cliff with an excellent variety of singe pitch sport and trad routes. This is the cliff located uphill from the popular Snake Eyes Wall.

Getting There

To reach Upper Snake Eyes Wall from the lower Snake Eyes Wall, it is best to hike up the ridge instead of following the gully. From the top of the ridge, traverse the hillside back to climber's left to reach the base of the wall.

There are 5 routes located in a slightly upper tier/platform at this wall.
There are two ways to reach this upper tier:

1. Find a crawl-through hole in the back of the main gully.
2. Climb the "Approach Pitch" on the right side of the gully.
