Mike Arechiga on, Hocus Pocus Arete.5.10b


A beautiful wall with a great concentration of sport routes from 5.9 to 11.d Some routes are purely clipping while others require a few pieces of added gear. Overall a fabulous collection of routes and a must visit area if you are visiting the Chilkoot lake area.

Getting There 

Walk the north end of the lake till you find a large clearing/ campsite with a fire ring about 200 feet from the lake. There is a trail that leads up the hillside left of some slabs, well marked by cairns. Follow the broken trail towards the hidden large walls to the right and work your way up and right passing Quarter Day dome and Christmas Wall finally ending up at the Magic wall. A good landmark if you find yourself bush whacking is the striking plated arete that is " Hocus Pocus Arete" which divides the west and south wall of the Magic Wall... Another landmark would be a massive dead tree about 30 feet tall that sits 15 feet fro the main/south wall.

Striking plated arete that separates the west and south face of the wall. Starts a bit higher off the trail then the main wall with a belay off the blocks directly below the route. The starting flared offwidth can be avoided with some creative face climbing to the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
