Climb slabby rock past horizontals that provide opportunities for good gear. Surmount a brief crux, and make your way to a large ledge with a giant plate sitting on it and belay. Move left and gain a low angle flake that forms a wide crack. Belay on a small ledge (to the right) once you exit the crack. Climb an easy pitch to the top of the Meadow Dome.

Walk off by scrambling farther up the dome to a clear left turn down into the Tan Corridor.


This is the first route on the left end of the Hemingway Wall. The start is hidden behind low brush back behind some trees.


Standard rack.

Likely the same route we did in April, we called it ABC (Already Been Climbed), start 50ft right of trail junction on Hemingway Wall. See photo. P1 was 100 feet. P2 sounded about the same: walked left and up a trough ~220' without moving belay. P3 we went up a little and then traversed left ~90 feet to some anchors and rap'd. Std rack and thought it was about 5.6.

If this isn't the same route, let me know and I'll write it up separately. Jun 18, 2014

My partner and I did this last weekend (4/12/2014). Easy climbing but dirty, lots of lichen, and very loose. I mistakenly knocked a couple of cantaloupe-sized chunks off, so be very wary. Not much to recommend this route other than the view. I think one star is being generous. Jul 14, 2014

We are little unclear about which side of the large ledge makes for the best P2 belay.
Also as of 8/18/18, there was some cord fixed at the small ledge for the P3 belay. Aug 20, 2018

The walkoff descent scrambles up and over the top then heads left and down to deposit you at the upper end of the Tan Corridor. Aug 20, 2018
