The steep wall heading up to the right of the waterfall. Morning shade, afternoon sun. If you stay to the left as you approach from the campground this is one of the first sections of the cliff you come to. The routes are mostly 5.12 and 5.13 with a few 5.11's at the far right, uphill end of the secture. The left side of the wall stars off at about 45 degrees for the first 40 feet then has a less steep headwall, while the right side of the cliff is more constant in angle between 15 and 30 degrees overhung.

Getting There 

Hike up the hill to the lowest point of the cliff, the waterfall and head right along the cliff band to the routes.

Trundle up the steep wall on jugs past a few bolts. A big move at the top of the initial overhang is the first crux. Move up onto the headwall on some great pockets which end in a seamingly blank section of rock. A crimpy move gets you through the blankness and to better pockets leading up to a shelf below a roof. Rest as the anchors are just above but a third and final crux getting over the roof on slopers gaurds them....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
