NOT Beginners Delight. If you go past the correct trail to cliff and take the next trail it is easy to confuse this climb (beside big left facing corner, with ledge 50 feet up) with Beginners Delight. Personaly learned the lesson the hard way.

That's the first pitch of Columbia (5.8). The left-facing corner above it is the side of the Madame G's buttress. If you are looking for Beginner's Delight, you'll know you've gone too far if you cross the 2008 rockfall area-- there are posted signs and big orange scars on the cliff, as well as a talus area below that is relatively clear of trees. Beginner's Delight is before this rockfall zone. Jun 21, 2012
