Description

A mighty enjoyable romp up the most prominent part of the wall. Starting from the base look up at the buttress/blunt arete and climb that, mostly staying to the right side and on the solid rock until you are above the cut section, then work the arete to the evergreen above, sling it for an anchor and lower off. If there is any interest I'll leave some webbing and booty biners up there soon.

On the way up I was able to put in six pieces, and probably could have fit more if I'd have dug out more placements, the rock is solid and the climbing is very fun. The first piece is about 15 feet up.

Location

As you walk down the trail by the road, this is the wall you walk by and say "I wonder when someone is going to be stupid enough to climb this".

Protection

Small nuts, full set of tricams from black to blue. Protection is tricky, but fully G rated if you stop to look for it.

And I remember someone else reporting it as a FA back in the late 90s. I never put it on the book because climbing there will cause problems. Jun 27, 2016

Oh cool, nope my line was to the left of that through the crack. I wasn't at all concerned about FA credit just saying that I had chosen not to report climbing on the cliff cause I didn't think the locals would like it... Though as I said the trail might make my old point moot... now we both have lines to do haha Nov 12, 2015

Sorry I'm late to this party. And I hate to be that guy but, I did climb much of the line you are referring to many years ago though it used to be solid rock all the way until they came and chipped it all to hell (grumble grumble).I decided not to report it cause I didn't think I should encourage other people to climb right off the road, maybe the trail makes it a better place to climb? I don't know. Anyway, glad you are out adventuring :) Nov 12, 2015

I concur with above.
Not to mention it might be "too close" to Buffalo Road for the locals liking.
I got a chuckle form the name, having just taken a trip to RRG. Cute. Nov 3, 2015

If you haven't already, you should consider talking with the RCA about this area, specifically regarding potential environmental concerns as well as the moratorium. Cool rock for sure. Nov 3, 2015
