Description 

Short routes, mostly for Top-Roping.
Wall faces SW, slants steeply from right up to left.

warning: Loose rock around here, so the belayer or other memhers of the party should stay far away from underneath the climber.

Top Rope: To get access to set up a top anchor, the easiest way is by scrambling up around the left (west) side of the Beard boulders, then traverse right (east) across above the Beard, and continue east onto steep slope above the Ear sector.

? Name ? We wanted to follow the theme of head features. We felt that this wall looks about as much like a ear as the nearby boulders look like a beard. Or perhaps the lower right half of the wall has an ear on it?

Getting There 

It's just right (east) across a steep dirt slope from the Beard double-boulder. So follow the instructions to get to the Beard sector, then look for a SW facing face about 20 feet east from the east side of the Beard double-boulder.

Some thoughtful moves. Too bad it's not more directly on the arete.Up the face just left of the arete. Finish can be made more difficult by going more on the arete or right.(? Perhaps some lower sections could also be made harder by trying to go more directly on the arete ?) warning: Loose rock around here, so the belayer or other memhers of the party should stay far away from underneath the climber. . . .
