Description

Approach: Hike up around the right side of the Wall of the Dead to the upper tier of Avalon. Traverse left on a trail below the routes Jaguar and Black Tiger. After about 100 yards, you'll see a 35-foot-high wall on the right with two 2-bolt anchors, and several cracks lacing the wall. This is the Wall of the Goddess.

Isis is the prominent finger-to-fist crack on the right. It starts behind a pine tree close to the wall.

Climb the crack and step left to the 2-bolt anchor. I used Aliens and Camalots to #3 for pro.

This is a short but physical crack climb. Rossiter rates it 10d on his website, but it felt a little easier.

Protection

Finger- to fist-sized gear. 2-bolt anchor.

OK climb. Good option to work on hand crack skills. It's probably easy 5.9 if you are a good crack climber and 5.9+ if you have average crack skills. Jul 20, 2013

I am not sure what to think sometimes of grades. I brushed the climb down pretty well on my way up and I think that made it a little easier- it is still cleaning up. No less, Lenny and I both thought the climb was about 5.9. I think that initial ascents all feel harder to the FA party due to lack of cleanliness on the route, avoiding bad holds, and the effort put into cleaning on the way up. I figure that the grade of this climb will eventually settle into 5.9-. As for the quality, it's hard to say a whole lot about a climb less than 10 meters tall. If it were 5 times longer, you'd have a great route on your hands, I guess. Meanwhile it goes as an after-work diversion. Jul 30, 2005
