Description

The wall is two sections, quite short to the left, divided by a crack to the right. In front on the right side is a wide other part that projects outward. The start near the pine tree is harder than it looks. Going up the upper face left of the wide crack is not as easy as it looks, either. The short wall farther left from the small overhang has only a thin vertical crack that itself is 5.10. So a small varied group can find anything from 5.4 up in a secluded area.

Location

On the way to go up the access gully, you pass this wall, with a wide ledge in the middle. On the rim, you will see two fair-sized pines on a flat area, previously used for anchors.

Protection

New bolted rim anchors.

The difficulty rating on this climb is all over the place, depending on how you go about it. Since the climb is broken down by ledge sections, let me give a similar rundown:

Start:
Far left-5.6
Left-5.6
Middle/Right-5.7

Mid ledge:
Far left-5.7
Left-5.5
Middle/Right-5.7

Top ledge:
Left (overhang)-5.10+
Middle/Right-5.7

The 5.7 routes are what come most naturally without "cheating" up the left faces, so a 5.7 makes the most sense. However, beginning climbers can still have fun on those sides, with a good difficult area thrown in for the vets higher up. May 31, 2015
