Description

This is a hidden sport / top rope area near the Nap Wall Area. The climbs are about 50 feet and feature steep flakes and cracks vs. the mainly face climbing of the dome.

The first two climbs you come to can be top roped from a two bolt anchor below the tree. The other climbs are best top roped from an anchor above and to the side of the tree. Besides the climbs here there are harder lines that you can top rope and play around on.

Getting There

Stand at the bottom of Crystal Crescent and turn around. The one pine tree you can see is the top where the two bolted anchors are. To get to the bottom walk / bushwack over and head between the pine tree and a cool granite knob lower down. Scramble past the top of the knob and drop down a steep fourth class chimney then step around to the right to the base of the climbs.

As of June 2016 it is a slight bushwack to get from the main wall at Crystal Crescent to the top of October Wall. Sorry, we just didn't get around to clearing that. So if you head up planning on visiting October wall, bring some clippers. It would be about 30 feet of brush clearing. The brush under the climbs has been cleared. Jun 25, 2016
