BETA PHOTO: Avalon from below with bolts


This route heads directly up the front face on the longest part of the shipwreck wall, and is the next route right of the 5.9 wide crack climb known as Peg Leg. The shiny top anchors can be seen from below on the highest section of sandstone above the center-right section of the black slab.

The first section heads up a slabby face for a few bolts and a 5.10bish move after the first bolt.

Climbing is simple until the crux, which is getting yourself through a diagonal crack system and over the bulge just after the small ledge 35 feet off the ground. After the bulge, the climb has one more move that is on loose sandstone up near the top anchors.


9 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor. Bring slings for the last few bolts.

A real quality climb. Tricky and powerful crux. Felt pretty stiff for a 12a.

Fun climbing up to a hard crux. Harder side of 12a in that section
