Obvious sidewalk that splits the face. Very grainy and may have some suspect bolts. There may even be a handline going up this ramp to make the crunchy trek easier. What can 'ya say... it's an approach pitch to some great climbing.


This is the scabby and loose ramp that is used as an approach pitch to some of the climbs on the main face.


Bolts, probably not all that sound due to rock quality. Anchors at various intervals to access the good routes above this grainy sidewalk.
