DescriptionThis is a scenic, little, 4-pitch outing on Red Mountain Pass. It has a short approach, great views, and solid quartzite rock. There is an exciting headwall finish. Thanks to the first ascensionists for the work to put in this nice moderate (think bell-shaped curve.) Bring granny!
LocationApproach as for the Waterfall Wall. There is a new tyrolean that was installed fall 2011. After the tyrolean, head right up a gully then go climber's left (south) along the base of the cliff maybe 150 yards. Princess Ella's Magical Adventure starts at the toe of a small buttress maybe 30 feet above the creek. Shiny bolts head up 75 feet to a ledge and a big pine. 3 more pitches of friendly bolts get you up the headwall finish to a big ledge and great views.
Descend with 4 raps with a single 70m rope.
There are a few loose rocks, but overall it has great rock. You can scope it from the highway 100 yards south of the parking spot, just above a scree slope that goes all the way to the creek.
