The Loading Zone, Warner Valley


The line which is the namesake of the crag. Start up Yesterday's Man, at the obvious crack leading of to the right exit around the bulge (crux for some) and head up through 2 VERY OLD and needing to be replaced bolts. This lead is for solid 11+/12 climbers!


Start up Yesterday's Man, at the crux of which you move right out obvious crack. It is possible to protect the traverse, watch for rope drag.


Gear to 4" (see Yesterday's Man), draws for bolts. If toproping be careful of rope direction and sawing across the face during traverse.

The bolts are rusty spinners, most likely from the FA. Need to be replaced. DO NOT EXPECT THESE TO HOLD A LEAD FALL, they need to be replaced. At this time, top rope only. Can i make it any clearer?
