This climb follows the bolts on the face just right of the zig-zagging crack on the Alcatraz Wall. This is the last major crag on the east side of the creek as you head down through Jailhouse Rock. To get there, continue down the creek past the point where it makes a 90 degree left turn below the Cell Blocks. Continue downhill past several bolted routes on the left (40 to Life, Mr. Meanor, & Mug Shot). At the bottom of the hill look up and left to see the Alcatraz Wall.

This face climb is probably the best route on Alcatraz Wall.


Three bolts, bring a few small/medium stoppers or cams to get you from the 2nd to 3rd bolt. There are chains up top.

Bolts and top-anchors updated by CASA in 2017.
