  • East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only
  • Some areas require a guide.

  • Description 

    The venerable classic, and the main reason to drop your pads at the Aircraft Carrier.
    Start on the head-height jug moving into the arete with a couple positive holds, then a sloping side-pull. Use your arete skills to gain balance for the lip, or just move into it with some swing. Finish slightly left.


    Front and center as you approach the Aircraft carrier.


    Many pads for height and slightly variable exit trajectory
