Description

The Big Wall section is the massive face that dominates the right side of the cliff. This impressive face hosts large, sweeping arches, flakes, loose blocks and a ton of steep slab.

Expect 5.11 (or harder) climbing on all but a few routes. A few modern routes can be found on the face, most notably Bloodsuckers and Tachycardia. The newer routes will be obvious with modern bolts and generous (relatively) bolting. The old routes on the face are serious climbing with big runouts and old rusty hardware.

Excellent adventure climbing can be found on the face. The routes can be up to five pitches in length over varied terrain. The face receives lots of sun and is best early or late season.

Getting There

Turn right where the trail meets the cliff at the toe of The Nose. After a few minute hike you will reach The Apron. Continue for five more minutes to reach the Big Wall.
