This is an awesome climb up the secluded Wiggins Wall. The hairy part is right before the small tree and ledge about halfway up, but it's well-protected.

To descend, scramble to the top and then downclimb the southwest side of the crag or rappel off the south bluff.


Go south past all the other walls. Go west on a path right before you pass a cave on your right and veer south to the cliff base. Scramble up a third class slab to a belay anchor and ledge.


9 bolts, two bolt anchor. Well-protected moves.

Ya got the old grade from the FA on here when it was still loose and evolving. 5.9 now, maybe 5.9+ at the crux if you're short.

You are undoubtedly right! I guess I can't claim to be climbing 5.10s anymore!

Favorite climb on the wall. 6'3" and agree with the 5.9 rating. My shorter climbing partner was sketched out with the mantel clip, and she (5'6") says 5.10 is good for her, but that is with the bravado to get that clip.
