BETA PHOTO: Cap Wall Left Indirect


Interesting variety of sustained traversing moves.

Up the right-facing corner, then step left onto grassy platform which is the start of a grassy left-trending gully. Step Right onto the right-trending ramp. Traverse right-ward all the way to beyond the end of the ramp. Exit up to top of wall.

? Project Lo ? Start the traverse with hands on the ramp (instead of feet).

? Project Hi ? Start with feet on the ramp and traverse partway right-ward, but exit from the ramp earlier before its end, up the face to the top of the wall.

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


Left edge of the overhanging wall (mostly blank except for crack in middle) on the SouthWest (Left) side of El Cap.


To set up Top-Rope, see Description of El Cap area.
Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
