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


Route starts just left of the dirty crack system. Scramble up some low 5.0 class rock to the first bolt. Work up the left side of the arete and pull onto a short friction slab. Staying left of the bolts, move up to the second overhang for the second crux, grabbing the right edge. Gain the face with good holds,(a 5.12a variation goes left here to some old rusted hangers) Continue on good crimps moving to the right of the bolts up to the anchors.


Middle of wall. Left of dirty crack.

Arete fun with varied climbing. 2.11.15 - chain anchor bolts are very corroded; walk off is a great option though.
