Begin in a dihedral to the left of the main Great Wall climbing area. On the right side wall is a finger crack leading to a roof. Start up the dirty dihedral to get to the finger crack. Follow the crack to the roof (crux) and traverse left and up to reach the left facing flake. Follow the left facing flake to a small roof with a hand crack. Move onto the face and up the short hand crack to the anchor.

This route does not see much traffic and is often dirty and covered with large spiders.


At the left side of the Great Wall. Make a left when the trail meets the wall. Look for the dihedral with finger crack in it. Rap with a single 60m rope.


TCU's to #3 C4 camalot, nuts and tricams wouldn't hurt. A few shoulder slings for the traverse. Fixed cam in the flake section. Rap anchors at the top.

The new guidebook downgraded the stars from four to two for good reason. Oct 7, 2010
Take a spider wand in the summer. Took a leg shredding whipper swatting at a monster wolf spider. Also the climb is just dirty and absorbs humidity. Sep 7, 2016

Despite the foliage on the first half, the route itself looks super fun from the ground. However, the spiders under the roof are serious business. Don't get bitten by one of those! Sep 18, 2017

Scramble up to the base and check out the finger crack before passing this one up! It's hard to see the crack from the ground but it's actually pretty rad.

I must have climbed this before the spiders took over, only saw one. Looked dirty from the ground, and was a little green in places, but everything I needed to pull on or step on was mostly clean. Took good gear and had thoughtful moves in the finger crack. Exciting traverse with a exposed finish leads to one of the better views from the chains. Take plenty of slings, single rack up to 3 with doubles in small finger sizes, and a set of stoppers. Despite what others think of this, I would climb it again. May 6, 2018
