  • Description 

    Short and to the point, this route ascends the small, south-facing wall capping the uphill end of the main Uninspiring Wall. Though protection is lacking, fun moves over good rock make it a climb worth doing for those that have ticked off most everything else.


    This is just uphill from the main Uninspiring Wall.

    Descend by rapping from the slung tree at the top.


    None. While the Levin guide gives this route an "R" rating, it should be taken seriously as a groundfall from 30' is possible.

    Funny, I'd just go to add this thing, and there it is, added moments ago.

    Yeah - R/X. X for the fact that it is not protected at all, R maybe because it is only 40' tall? I say X for an inevitable groundfall. Good climb, though.

    I see mention that there is now a webbing anchor on the tree at the top for those who wish to TR it. Apparently the submitting party did it right after us. It is a single 9/16" strand. Back it up with a sling if you feel that is inadequate.

    An unmentioned downclimb traversing to the left and then into and down the corner is 5.3-ish.

    Yeah, thought I saw some chalk on it and figured it must have been you. I wonder how long it has gone unclimbed before seeing two ascents within a couple of hours haha....

    Funny thing was, Eric, we saw it too, but Joseffa and I don't own or use chalk.
    So, there was a 3rd party around in the recent past.
