Access Issue: Closed to climbing March 15 - June 30 Details
This area is closed March 15 - June 30 for peregrine falcon nesting.
This is an excellent route with thoughtful sequences and a tricky crux move revolving around poor feet and cryptic pinches (or sidepulls? or crimps? Depends how you do it!). While the 10c crux is short, the upper section features some very enjoyable, steep 9+ movement on perfect crystals.
Just as you drop down towards the main section of Avalon, you'll see a small alcove with some aspen trees at the base. The Tourney Slot starts up into this alcove towards a steeper part of the wall.
