Description

This area was developed in 2015 by Ney and Betsy Grant except for two old routes with ¼” buttonhead bolts, likely from the 70s or 80s. The old routes were rebolted and one was lengthened with a belay station added.

This wall is named for a striking feature evident in the aerial photos. We didn't notice it on the ground, and I didn’t noticed when I did the fly-by for the photos, but when I saw the photos on the computer I showed my wife and asked, “what does this look like to you?” She said, “Um, Not A Penis”. Nap. In fact, one of the best climbs at the dome is at the Nap feature: Under My Skin.

Walking off Nap Wall area from the top is easy. Take a left and head down class 4 then easier terrain to the bottom along the edge of the dome.

Rap the Nap

The Nap Wall rappel route is the route Urethra, straight down the not-a-p***s.

To find the anchor (rings) from the top walk northeast past the Crystal Wall small pine tree about a hundred yards and look for a three-sided 4 foot high block. Think about the fact that if it were four sided the snow and ice would have popped it off and taken it down the dome. Walk down and about 30 feet to the right for the chains. It is one 70 meter (two rope) rappel from the anchor down Urethra or you can do it in two raps (still two ropes) using the intermediate rings. Note that if you do it in one rap you will still have to downclimb easy but steep 5th class rock to the ground from the tip of the not-a-p***s.

Getting There

You can reach the Nap Wall area by continuing on the trail for a few minutes past the Crystal Wall area. The actual Nap (Not a P**s) will be evident, then the large slab where Iliac and Naptime are located, then finally the beautiful granite face of Crystal Crescent below an arch.
