The Upper Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: A view from Aphrodite to Half Hearted.
This is the large expanse of wall that includes the routes Aphrodite
thru Kathy's Corner
. This wonderful stretch of stone is the location of many hard trad routes and several difficult sporty climbs. The Upper Wall gets early morning sun and afternoon shade.
From the Air Conditioner corner the Upper Wall lies above and to the right. Access to the horizontal ledge system that traverses the base of the wall is easy and straightforward. This provides the best way to the base of 3 Pin and most of the routes from the left side to the middle of the wall. Access to the left side of the wall for Aphrodite

Originally, ascents of this route set up a semi-hanging belay at this point so the belayer could keep a close eye on the leader through the crux without rope drag from the traverse.
