Description

The arrival point of the main access trail up from the log bridge. Base of cliff rises up in both directions from the top of the trail.
Faces WSW.

Central section is overhanging wall with few features. Left side has some three-dimensional features, but tougher than it looks. Right side might be the tallest single-pitch (more than 35 meters) at Rush, with interesting three-dimensional features.

Top-Roping: A way to get access to set up anchor at top of the right side of this sector is by first hiking/scrambling up steep Right to reach sector 8 Dostie, then diagonal up the lower of the left-trending gullies (3rd-4th class), being careful with loose rocks.
. . warning: 70 meter rope is not sufficient for belaying TR from the bottom. Belayer must be stationed by the top anchor, and use a belay device and gear configuration suitable for belaying a person climbing below the belay location.

Name: Lynn Hill grew up in Fullerton, learned to climb at Big Rock by Lake Perris. Her first Eastside climb was one ot the famous aretes (Sun Ribbon?) on Temple Crag - at age 15. Next on to conquer the famous rocks and walls of California, and then on to the entire world. Raised the possibilities for woman climbers to whole new levels -- and for men also with her first free ascent of the Nose of Yosemite.

. . previous name "Midi" was for the Aiguille du Midi, which is the top arrival station for the mechanical lift quickly bringing climbers up from the floor of the valley. It also has several multi-pitch rock routes, very popular is the South face.

warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Getting There

Follow the instructions on the Rush area description page to reach the center of this sector. (8-16 minutes)

If already at sector 8 Dostie, hike/scramble down Left 100 feet on steep dirt grass rocks sagebrush.
