Bring a good selection of small cams; they were useful in the tunnel. I did appreciate having a headlamp for placing gear. Going to the top adds some to the adventure: blocky 5.6 R with some routefinding and rope drag. I belayed off a bigger juniper tree. The descent is apparently a chimney at the upstream end of the wall; I'd recommend checking it out before climbing up as we couldn't find it. We did find a reasonable 3rd class descent downstream past the Windfall Wall. Jul 6, 2015

I think PG13 might be more appropriate. if you fell getting established in the chimney you could potentially hit the ledge but you likely wouldn't die.

I thought you could take this route all the way up but it seemed to end at the anchors of Demander Cody. Did I miss something? Jun 21, 2015

Yep - definitely not R. Great route - very fun little mini-adventure. Face out. Wear a headlamp around your neck pointing down so you can see the color of your gear. Feb 1, 2015

PG13 at most, don't let the R scare you away! Protip: face out. Sep 21, 2014
