Description

A great beginner route and/or trad lead. Small (for a 5.5) holds lead to a large ledge. Continue past the ledge on large blocks. Many harder variations exist on the face.
  • RCM&W #7, p. 156.

Location

From the parking lot/visitor's center, this route lies about 100 yards down the road to the river boat dock on the right. There is a gravel area with several large rock. The Other One is the left most climbing. Left of the large tree about 10 feet up (The Cornice).

Protection

Nuts, Hexes, Cams. Mostly nut sized. Hexes and nuts for the TR setup

Photos

At least three different routes/variations can be done on this face. Directly to the left of the tree is "The Other One," the center line is a sustained face climb (5.5-5.6), and the far left is an easy dihedral (5.4-5.5), but it has a loose rock near the top. I also found a fun variation to "The Other One" where you head right after the tree for a few reachy moves and a fun finish. Jun 2, 2015

Climbed this route yesterday, 9/1/14. There is a wasp nest about 4 feet from the top of the route in a diagonal crack. I placed 2 pieces in the crack on lead, but luckily they didn't sting me or my partner when we were putting our hands in there. Sep 2, 2014
