Description

An unusual route in that it doesn't follow a plumb line, Wall of Horns is a thought-provoking climb through juggy but overhanging conglomerate. But first, you've got to get through that long and spicy traverse.

Starting on the left side of a wide crack, climb about 10-15' to a point where there's enough positive hands and feet to begin moving left across the face. Continue the delicate traverse another 20' or so left and up to gain the namesake horns that will lead you to the anchors at the top.

Location

In the Whipping Post area; starts on the wall across from Dreamscape left of a prominent crack.

Protection

Marginal. This would be an R/X-rated lead and is best done as a toprope. Wearing a helmet is recommended, as a fall during the traverse will result in a long pendulum. Bolted anchors at the top.

Hey BJ, the stem route following the same bolts as "nothingness" has been referred to by a name called "somethingness". I've never seen this name online, but heard about it at the crag. It's rated at a 5.9. Been trying to climb it myself for some time, is just a scary climb (but very doable) Oct 12, 2017
