Paulette Burgess on the Tall Wall.
Tall and narrow formation. Despite the name, it's not the tallest in the Hills (that would be The Loaf). All climbs are east-facing and on decent quality rock.
Drive north on Movie Flat Road until the big bend to the right. Turn left here and drive until an obvious fork in the road. Turn left and continue on this to the parking area. This wall is the tall and narrow formation to the west.

Due to the addition of many routes, the statement that all routes are east-facing is no longer true: Back Trail and Dead Don't Dream face north.
Lives of the Cowboys faces south.

Does anyone know what this route is? I put it up on lead yesterday and couldn't find info about it anywhere. Felt like 10c?
A bit of choss here and there, but overall really great climbing!
All bolts looked brand new and someone's oval biners were at the top for rapping.
Let me know!
Does anyone know what this route is? New bolts, nice and overhung! I couldn't really tell what it was...maybe felt like 10c?
