Description

A remote little suburb of East Hellgate with two moderate lines. Nestled in the trees and shrubs below The Clamshell, this quiet crag has one traditional line as well as one bolted line and not much room for anything else. Crowding shouldn't be a worry as the approach requires a bit of work and climbers seldom carry cams and stoppers while climbing at East Hellgate. Exposure at the Crack of Noon Wall is similar to that of the Goatland Wall and shade doesn't come until late in the evening. About as isolated as it gets, this area is a nice spot that warrants at least one visit.
Park your car off of the main canyon road. Details

Getting There

One could thrash their way up from the road for some added suffering, or you could approach for the Melting Mud Wall. Follow the trail along the base until you reach the Winking Owl and scurry down the gully about 30 feet until you see a faint goat trail. Turn right and follow this until an obvious crag appears.
