B. Recessed Slab Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Lower Tier topo. (c) Josh Pollock.
This short, smooth face sits between the East and Middle Walls but does not reach the ground where they do. Instead, you must make a dirty step up past the right edge of the East Wall. The angle and character of the Recessed Slab is similar to the East Wall.
A. Don't Rock My Boat
, 7, 2p, 205', bolts.
BC. My Feet is My Only Carriage
, 7, 1p, 60', bolt & gear.
C. Cornmeal Porridge
, 7+, 1p, 60', bolts.
From the top of the approach gully for the East Wall, you must scramble up a short step just to the right of the start of The Burning Bush and into a little copse of shaggy-bark cedars. The start of Dont Rock My Boat

and Cornmeal Porridge
are a few more mossy steps up to the right.
