Description

The crag’s middle wall section is broken into a lower and upper face by a catwalk which is accessible at either end of the wall. Many routes on the Main Wall can be combined to form two pitch climbs.

Getting There

To approach from the saddle of the West Fork of Cold Springs trail, a short way up the trail, turn left and contour around to the northwest along a well-established trail. Stay right as you contour and you will find yourself at the big Live Oak which marks the top of the Central Services face. From the large Oak, continue east and scramble down a steep trail along the base of the wall. When coming from this direction, the first routes you will pass under are the upper wall’s ‘Toe-talitarian Tower’ and the trail will level out just before the start of ‘Bad Sportsmanship’ on the lower wall.
To approach from the East End of the crag, scramble down from the base of the Bug Wall area to the climber’s right to the East/left end of the Lower Main Face. First bolt line you come to from this direction is ‘Pulling Strings.’
