Follow a crack system on the left side of 70 Foot Wall. You will see a large 200 lb dislodged rock at the base of the route which fell when my wife lie- backed on it hence the route name. Reasonable pro until half-way up route then place pro in questionable rock for crux and pull down gently. Route still needs cleaning to be reasonable but cleaning will eliminate much of the crux protection.


When looking from the restroom toward the Boat Ramp you will see a 70 ft granite wall furthest left of the boat ramp access road and at the lowest elevation. There is a ledge just right of this wall the cuts the height in half. 1 minute approach from restroom but thrash through a little brush to base. Room for several classic routes on this wall if it is cleaned.


Small to medium tcus and medium to small camalots. A few wired nut placements. Sketchy pro on upper half of route and somewhat run-out above it. At finish, clip into 3/8 inch cold-shuts and back them up with other pro and webbing if top-roping.
