Description

Northerly facing steep slab wall. There are several giant and stacked blocks on the bottom left of the wall that are quite impressive to look at. Still needs traffic to clean up, but overall a really splendid wall with great crimps.

New development includes routes to the left of drowning machine and the impressive-looking stacked blocks with a generally moderate, juggy nature following good holds up unique rock. A nice spot with easier climbing for those busy weekends. Watch out for poison oak (the only place I've seen it at the Emeralds - but its there!)

Getting There

Just before negativity cave/slab approach follow the cairns down and left (trail leads down to steel monkey wall). As you begin to descend the wall is very prominent on the right against the skyline (see picture under "Drowning Machine").
