Description

For most routes near the Uberfall - from Horseman, past Jackie, including Baby, Son of Easy O, City Lights and Maria, all the way to the routes around Sixish and Drunkard's Delight, walking off is a good (and sometimes, given crowds, the best) option.

From the top of Horseman and neighboring routes, wander down and climbers' right back towards the cliff top. Find the stream bed and follow it to the top of Ken's Crack and Boston.

From the top of Ken's Crack and routes further right, follow trails along the clifftop back towards the Uberfall. These trails will lead you to the open area on top of Ken's Crack and Boston.

Once you've gotten to the tops of Ken's Crack and Boston, you can see the carriage road about 40' below. Next: continue down the streambed to climbers' left and squeeze behind an obvious 5' boulder. Now, have a seat. Scootch left, to a good stance at a giant horizontal tree root - this feature is how you'll know you're in the right place. Scamper down and left on buckets and ledges, to the carriage road.

Location

The Uberfall descent deposits you just to the left of Trashcan Overhang, scant seconds back to your packs.

Protection

You may want to use climbing shoes for the first trip down, but approach shoes are usually fine.
