Description 

Wall directly acrosss from the Supreme Wizard Formation on the West side of the gorge.

One of the coldest spots in the gorge.

Getting There 

Bushwack down to the river avoiding copious nettle. Find a sketchy pile of logs and avoid falling in the river. Belay Micro Pete from the river bed or scramble up to a ledge. Otherwise, 3rd class up and right to the other climbs which start off ledges.

Climbing Season

A short arête that packs a punch at the top. Features teetery arête climbing that sports some unique movement for the gorge. This is not a standard crimp rig. It would be a hard onsight w/o chalk on it, which is likely due to its obscurity. If you like short climbs, this is an off the beaten path gem....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
