For the moment, access to this area by climbers should be from a temporary trailhead/parking area that is located near the old Morrell's Wall Parking Lot area. From there, the new Tom's Thumb Trail leads up toward Morrells Wall, Gardeners Wall and on to Tom's Thumb. Please look for, and use designated climber access trails.
DescriptionGood solid rock past two bolts to first pitch crux - a semi off-width chimney easily protected.
Second pitch is short past two bolts and great belay station.
Third pitch goes across the chasm to the left and up the obvious Y-shaped crack above.
Move across the ramp leading up - you can sling the horn and then up two moves to the top anchors.
