Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionClose to town, but without many good climbs to attract you here. It is very close to the other climbs in the Holidays, and thus should be considered if you're out this way. There is potential, but would require a lot of cleaning, between Antimatter on the far left and Munsunned on the right. Specifically, the left crack that continues up as Outer Space goes right, a short access pitch from the Outer Space ledge up and right (more up there?), and a crack that goes all the way to the top of the wall but starts with a shut seam (still free-able with bolts) into a crack choked with vegetation.
Getting ThereHighly recommend the Orange Sky valley approach, though you can also find your way behind the houses, up the creek-gully, and directly to the Holidays. This is steep and somewhat overgrown.
Instead, once you've left town but not quite to the AnQiNi scenic area turnoff towards the Lisu area, you will see a parking lot on your left (filled with gravel and construction vehicles as of 11/2016) and a large traditional house on your right, there is a trail hops the culvert and goes up through some small gardens on the hillside. Follow the most obvious path along the hillside and into the trees. It will pop out in a meadow, with the Cretaceous area up and to your right, the Orange Sky valley straight ahead, and another small village below and to your left. Head straight across the meadow and pick up another trail continuing straight up the valley. As you get nearer to the trees below the cliff on your left, turn left into the trees and follow the trail that skirts the base of this wall. Continue all the way around this - at one point passing the toe of the buttress which has a couple climbs - to the south face. An indistinct trail goes up towards the wall (past a low alcove with a beehive, before you hit the creek). Follow this to the start of Outer Space. Continue left to Antimatter and right to Munsunned.
