Description

Bolted welded tuff on the rim looking east over the Gorge. I bolted about 6 routes here, from about 5.7 to .10b. There is a cool beginner wall with three easy routes that can be top roped or led. 5 minutes from car to the base.

Getting There

Follow same directions as to the Alcove ... but stop about 100 yards before you get to the Alcove. Scramble down through a notch to get to the base.

Thanks, Matt, for all your time and hard work. Don't mind brucy, he just loves to nitpick, never a positive contribution. Oct 7, 2017

Thanks, Matt. Yep, that sounds about right for a rating. We did it today. If you climb it trending to the left of the bolts, I'd go 10b/c. If you trend to the right, 10a. Fun! Thanks for your work on this area.

Thanks Todd and others for developing this area. Approach and most of the routes are described in the Lewis guide to the Mammoth area. The first wall you encounter, which has 10a's on the left and right of a recess, now has a new route up the center face in between. Any info. on this? Looks about the same grade, give or take, as the others.

This is a beautiful place to hang out and do some fun, moderate climbing. Just digging the view is enough! Gorgeous.

Oh, I did tighten a somewhat loose bolt, too.

today I went out to the cliff and rapped in and tightened up as many bolts as I could on the central wall. I tightened up all the anchors and most of the lead bolts. I also tightened up all of the anchors I could get to on top of the cliff. They all tightened up nicely, besides the left anchor bolt on Start Me Up. It was very loose and would not tighten up. It is a weird anchor with the chain bolted to the rock with washers... next time I am out there I will replace that anchor.

It would be a good idea to bring a 1/2" and 9/16" wrench when climbing out here to tighten bolts if needed. Aug 26, 2017

Hello Todd,

Why is there no route descriptions for any of the 10 or so routes at this cliff?
Why is there no "detailed" description for getting to the cliff by car or by car/hiking to avoid damaging a sedan?
Why do several of the hangers rotate as tho they never were properly tightened? Jul 5, 2017

We were here a few days ago and really enjoyed the climbing. Thanks Todd for putting up these routes!

Many of the anchor bolts we encountered were wiggly. (Might just need a tightening?) Jul 1, 2017

Hey Matt -- cool. I thought the rock was good and hang even better. Mar 10, 2016
I bolted two climbs up there and I would say there are around ten bolted routes. Really cool hang and fun routes on good rock. Mar 10, 2016
