Description Suggest change

A dense concentration of routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.11d. Routes are a mix of sport and trad, most of which provide access to the Main Wall West located above Snag Buttress. The area faces south and gets full sun from early morning to late afternoon.

Getting There Suggest change

Park and approach as for Main Wall. Routes will be visible on the left after 10-15 mins, with all but Down and Under being accessible by a small ramp that leads up and east, providing a nice, comfy belay ledge for most routes.
