Hi y'all,

What's the fastest way up to the big wall area these days? I did a few horrendous bushwhacks using the Moby Grape trail (earlyish season post rock fall which wiped out the moby trail). Is there a trail that way now, or is it best to head climbers left once in the talus field.

A few months ago i was up there and took the Moby grape trail up all the way to the cliff and after doing some single pitch stuff followed the cliff all the way down to Whitney G without much trouble. There was an occasional dense bush but not too bad. Key was to stay closer to the cliff and not get lured down hill into more dense bushes and loose talus.

Moby trail seems to be the best way to center of the cliff??
