BETA PHOTO: The Ear sector, overview of routes ... A. Huggie ...
Short routes, mostly for Top-Roping.
Wall faces SW, slants steeply from right up to left.
warning: Loose rock around here, so the belayer or other memhers of the party should stay far away from underneath the climber.
Top Rope: To get access to set up a top anchor, the easiest way is by scrambling up around the left (west) side of the Beard boulders, then traverse right (east) across above the Beard, and continue east onto steep slope above the Ear sector.
