BETA PHOTO: Likely route, at least where we went in April.

Falcon Closures MORE INFO >>>


Climb slabby rock past horizontals that provide opportunities for good gear. Surmount a brief crux, and make your way to a large ledge with a giant plate sitting on it and belay. Move left and gain a low angle flake that forms a wide crack. Belay on a small ledge once you exit the crack. Climb an easy pitch to the top of the Meadow Dome.


This is the first route on the Hemingway Wall.


Standard rack.

Likely the same route we did in April, we called it ABC (Already Been Climbed), start 50ft right of trail junction on Hemingway Wall. See photo. P1 was 100 feet. P2 sounded about the same: walked left and up a trough ~220' without moving belay. P3 we went up a little and then traversed left ~90 feet to some anchors and rap'd. Std rack and thought it was about 5.6.

If this isn't the same route, let me know and I'll write it up separately.

My partner and I did this last weekend (4/12/2014). Easy climbing but dirty, lots of lichen, and very loose. I mistakenly knocked a couple of cantaloupe-sized chunks off, so be very wary. Not much to recommend this route other than the view. I think one star is being generous.
