Access Issue: Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. Details
In 2015, Access Fund acquired key privately owned access parcels when foreclosed on by the bank to keep it in climbing-friendly hands. Please park and camp on Access Fund property and take the new trail down. Please donate today ataccessfund.org/homestead to secure permanent access and conservation of the Homestead.
Hard move just above a fun start. Then sidepulls keep you busy for a while. The fourth or fifth bolt is hard clip in order to get it in good rock. "Bakerized" near the top to avoid the sharp ragged flake and sharp pointy gray rock. This means it is bolted in a way that encourages you to make the hard moves right out of a small right facing corner into a larger left facing corner. At the top of this there is a cool traverse back left on a cool feature. Much less painful and the rock is good.
Part of the way across the main face of Rough Rider Wall a ledge forms and runs almost all the way to the apex between the north and west face. This is known as the Roughian's Redoubt sector of the cliff. It is easily accessed from the left or north end. The route starts about 15 feet right of the left end of the ledge.
