Description

Wall: This distinctly vertical white face has a mid roof section and is definitely worth a visit.

Routes are roughly 80 ft tall and provide a range of moderates to more difficult levels (range from 5.8 to 5.11). Multi-pitch options offer 120 ft two pitch climbs and a couple different link up of routes can change things up and provide a few more challenges. Perma-draws are provided through the crux sections of several of the routes on this wall. Enjoy your workout!

Ratings: While easier climbs are given a rating number representing the climb to be no harder than the rating represented, routes rated 5.10 and up are given a specific max crux rating. This should help you plan your visit and navigate your way along the bluff while using Mountain Project.

Please provide feedback using your MP App. Star rating and rate difficulty feedback helps the next visitors use the app.

Getting There

After going down the stairs and taking a left this is the first area you come to. It's a bit of a scramble up the hill, or go past it a little and double back along the base of the wall.
