This wall faces east and is good on days 75 degrees or less. You can climb there if it is warmer on a breezy day. Nothing spectacular at this crag but a full day of fun climbing. Most of the routes are face routes but there are a few cracks and a small rack is a good idea.

Getting There 

Approach is roughly the same as Wasteland. When you are not far below the Wasteland you will see a low angle white rock corner that leads up to a roof system. Scramble up the corner to the top then move right around the buttress and you will be on the level that most of the climbs start. From the start of the white corner this is about 100 feet.

One of the routes here seems to be, at least in part, Slow Bolt to China. This is described in Bob Kerry's second book on page 196 and on page 202.

The way I recall it; in 1999 during a bean fest weekend, Mark Colby and I were putting up Iron Man and EFR was doing an FA to our left and I believe SA also did two routes left of Sole Man. Anyone care to elaborate?

From the top of Exit Dome, you can walk up to Entrance Dome's left main face and buttress, then 3rd class uo 30' to an anchor. From here it is .8+ to climb the left buttress, or .9+ to climb a right angling weakness to the summit. The .9+ is called CrackMan and takes a large rack heavy in the 3" size.
