Description 

Very short wall with four routes on it. The sandstone blocks stand about 3-4 feet high and then the brick begins. Artificial holds make the brick portion easily climbable. This wall is easily accessed from the back side for setting up top ropes. With the exception of Ledges to Heaven, the route names are bestowed by myself for lack of availability of information. If anyone has information on the actual route names, please provide them. Hunter, Randy and John, I'm talking to you. From left to right, the routes are:
Red Tape
Ledges to Heaven
Weak and Powerless
This is Dedication

Getting There

Despite the easy grades, this is my favorite trestle because you don't have to spend all kinds of time and energy testing out every possible hold.
