Access Issue: Access: Details
For the moment, access to this area by climbers should be from a temporary trailhead/parking area that is located near the old Morrell's Wall Parking Lot area. From there, the new Tom's Thumb Trail leads up toward Morrells Wall, Gardeners Wall and on to Tom's Thumb. Please look for, and use designated climber access trails.
Back in 06/07 we were romping around the McDowells constantly. We were climbing everything we could get our hands on. We know there were tons of climbers to test their skills in the area far before we ever graced this planet. We climbed the classics and climbed other lines that just looked worth a try..or several. On one full moon night we spent hours trying this thin slab boulder problem just to the right of the outstanding handcrack. After countless falls my good friend craig finally pulled over the top. By that point I was no longer spotting and instead watching his determination and drive play out to be one of his greatest climbing highlights. First ascent or not it made for some great memories. If anyone has any other info please post. Since this is still a project for me I had no idea what to rate it, get on it and tell me what you think.
