Description

This area contains all the climbs on the south face of Machete Ridge including the ultra classic, Old Original.

Getting There

Find a small climber's trail right past a small seasonal waterfall. just before you reach The Gameshow.  Climb up this and left aiming for the buttress which forms the south face.  Hug the face and then climb out on 3rd class slabs to reach the routes.  It's about a 500' uphill slog.  Watch for ticks in season.
