Climb up over death flake to beautiful technical crimp fest.


Follow Quarry Trail to Main Wall. Steep technical face with giant horizontal death flake marking the start of the route. Farthest left margin of Main Wall. 15' left of The Great White Pillar.


Gear anchor to 3".

Yes west of the quarry. Trail starts just left of the entrance gate to quarry. Follow faint trail along quarry fence uphill just before it intersects with first crag follow climbers trail left (west) this will take you to main wall and SS Buttress.
Have fun!!!
Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated.

There's a pair of old rusty bolts atop this climb. I rapped them today, but they might be worth replacing. If someone will help me on technique, I will do my best to refurbish some of these climbs. We were going to rap from the top of the pillar to get to the 10 crack but the webbing looked questionable to my partner. My guess is TGWP needs some love too. Jul 16, 2014
