This roadside crag is shaping up, and has huge potential for more routes. Secluded, well sheltered base area, with shade and protection from rain. Rock is Skagit Gneiss with some friable rock but generally clean. Considerable road noise by passing diesel trucks and Harley riders.

This wall has seen a couple waves of development and has plenty of potential to continue growing. The first bolting activity was done by a traveling Russian climber, and was left incomplete nearly 20 years ago. The original rusted, quarter inch bolts have been replaced.

There are a number of other bolts leading to the top of the wall that are open/abandoned projects.

Getting There 

Follow Hwy 20 east of Newhalem to mile marker 126. The wall is immediately north of the highway (about 20 yards) where the road to Diablo and Lower Gorge campground veer off.
