Description

Small wall a bit left from the high section of sector 8 Miroir and above sector 5.

The rock face is roughly 25-40 feet tall. Faces ENE.

As of October 2016, there are no publicly-known climbing routes in this sector.

Top-Roping: Currently not known if it is possible to access the top of this wall without climbing one of its routes.

Name: for Urmas Franosch, creator of many Eastside rock climbs, and ski instructor at Mammoth Mountain.

. . (old name: The June Lake Loop has long been recognized as a little visit to Switzerland. "Valère" is a quartzite crag in the canton of Valais / Wallis, in the Rhone river valley in the southwest corner of Switzerland. Pronounce "Valère", using the French language of western Switzerland - roughly as ... vahl-err).

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

Getting There

hiking approach: First follow the instructions on the Silver Lake area description page to reach sectors 5 + 6. After passing left under gully coming down from the left side of the mini-peak "la Dent d'Argentine" (at the top of sector 8), scramble roughly straight up along the left side of sectors 7 + 8, then see this sector short diagonal up left.
. (or follow the instructions to reach sector 5, then continue up diagonal right a short ways, then see this sector short diagonal left).
