Description

Although the main area has many good problems to try, very few give you some real air under your feet. The top cluster is loaded with quality highballs as well as few hard climbs with good landings. If you're interested in developing, the top cluster could keep you occupied for quite some time.

Getting There

There are a few methods for getting to the top depending on where you are. If hiking straight to the top from the parking lot, it is recommended to go straight up from the campsites until you reach the scree field. From here, traverse left until you reach the Emperor's Bloc, then cut back right into the huge talus that makes the top cluster. The approach time is 30 minutes from the parking and 20 minutes from the main area.
