Overhanging blank face with a dozen routes drilled into it the base. There are ~30 routes if you count all the extensions and linkups. Routes range from 10d to 14a with only a handful below 5.12. This was the wall that originally caused all the issues with Leslie.

Getting There 

Take the road into Leslie. Stop at pullout on the left just before the ranger hut. You will see the Asylum up the hill (see pic). To reach Einstein from the pullout, hike 5 minutes up the draw in front of you. You will soon see the obvious bolted wall just off the left side of the trail.

Long route that many people use to warm up. Starts with a couple burly moves to traverse out onto a slightly less than vertical face. Get a no-hands rest here, then launch straight into the crimpy crux. Continue up the wall on small crimps and pockets to chains....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oregon
