Description 

This is the chunk'o'rock which you saw from the highway and which got you all excited. Most people climb in this area which gets sun for a good part of the day - it is east-south-east facing! The rock is basalt, and in some places you'll want to test holds before you commit to them...

It's a great area to chill and do some short climbs on. There is a picnic table right next to a bunch of rocks arranged in a form that remotely resembles the beginnings (or end) of a house, hence the name.

There are top-rope, sport and trad routes here. Once you get to the top, it is possible to move around and rap-down on a different anchor (you should know what you are doing if you do this!)

This is a great route! In my opinion the best that House Wall has to offer.The route angles slowly to the left, going over two "cruxy" bulges. Each bulge offers itself with increasing intensity. The second bulge, right below the anchor, looks bare, but to the well-trained eye, or the "long-armed" climber, there are ways past these difficulties.The route is a bolt-festival....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
