Rappelling down the face.

Lower Main Wall/East Buttress Trails Re-opened MORE INFO >>>


I top-roped this--fun 5.8 with no difficulty since I wasn't concerned with placing pieces.


In about the middle of the feature, a smoothish wall that stands out just a bit from the rock to its left. The Jack is the left-hand of the two obvious crack routes on this part of the wall.


Unless top-roping, the overhanging moves at the start require precise placements of small nuts to keep it safe. Gear to 3 inches, with emphasis on smaller stoppers & offset nuts. Rappel from bolts.
