Description Suggest change

Walking in, upper north comb will be the first wall you encounter. Literally a few steps off the trail, a steep wall covered in pockets might have some bouldering potential if the moss at the upper lip were removed.

Getting There Suggest change

The obvious terraces lead to routes 1 and 2; The very next switchback on the trail leads down to routes 3-6 (Orton guide 1-4).

Further down Manzanita ridge, the next right side fork leads down to route 7-10 in an unmistakable hemicylinder (a pair of tree trunks on either side of the trail look like a gateway; walk down a grassy hillside until reentering the forest).
