Shorter routes on the cool West facing cliffline near the bend.

This area features the easiest access and the best rock quality all less than 100 yards away from the bend campsites. There are several routes that could be climbed ground up, on gear, however the rock is dirty so time must be taken to clean placements.

Getting There 

From the TC bend: Take the fork that crosses the creek. Once you cross the stream, immediately trend East towards the clifline, you will connect with the other path. Continue up the hill to the face, where you will be met by a bomber dihedral crack. The face there and further south is The Journey wall.

There are several scrambles that will lead you to the top to set anchors. While there is plenty of anchors available, there are some exposed traverses to contend with.
