Description

Similar exposure to Gong Show (afternoon shade). It is only 0.8 miles further up the road.

Getting There

Paved parking pullout is on the right hand side of the road when approaching from 395, 5.3 miles up. Follow the fisherman's trail east through the woods for a few minutes until it weaves back to the river, where you will see a large crossing log. Quite recently (July 2016), climbing angels unknown to me have constructed an excellent and well-cairned approach trail. Cross the log and follow it as it works its way up hill. As you approach the base of the first wall you come to, you will see an old juniper with a huge and distinctive burl (see photo). You will see cairns leading right. 4:20 wall is up and right another 5 minutes (see photo). With the burl tree straight ahead of you, follow the cairns that lead up and right to 4:20 wall.

Yup saw the post about the elixir wall.. not sure if my memory is a bit foggy... but these routes don't match the description of the two routes we climbed..
the first route we climbed start with about 4 bolts with strenuous liebacking to thin crimps up to the crux bolt and finished with a traverse for 2 or 3 bolts to the right to the anchors. This route was just right of a great looking right facing arching corner to a roof with 1 bolt which sounds familiar to one of the routes listed..

the second route we climbed was to the right of this route about 100ft and down the cliff. started in a right facing corner for a few bolts then pull left and up on a killer arete./roof. then fun facing climbing from there.

maybe we were 1 wall left and up from the elixir wall.. not sure. Sep 13, 2016
