Description Suggest change

So very steep and mostly bolted! After sitting dormant the old routes here have been revived with a few new additions. This is a great spot to get some shade and enjoy atypical gymnastic moves for Index. You will quickly become acquainted with the "5.10 high step move" that most routes start on. Consider stick clipping if it's your first time doing it.

Getting There Suggest change

From Lower Rhythm, faint tread heads up and left toward the wall (visible with large roofs). Hug the base of the small cliffs past Metronome. Alternatively, continue past the Lower Rhythm turnoff on the Mid Wall trail until it veers right past a scrubbed lowball boulder and heads under a massive fallen snag. Look for a cairn on the right shortly thereafter and head directly up the hill.
