2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch MORE INFO >>>


This stunning arete is the rightmost route on the Earwax Wall.

Five bolts of very technical and insecure 5.11+ arete climbing leads to a crux and then more 5.11+ to the chains.


Right arete of the Earwax Wall.


7 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor.

This thing offers some of the most sustained and technical climbing I have done at index, the quality is unreal. Unfortunately it is also pretty dirty, slightly detracting from the quality, be sure to bring a brush and a sense of humor.
