Undertow Wall Rock Climbing
not sure who this is... anyone know?
This classic RRG wall characterizes many of the best aspects of Red sport climbing. Long, steep and pumpy this featured wall is littered with crimps, pockets, pinches, and jugs. While the climbs may not follow stand out features they are all fun Red "jug hauls".
Right of the Madness Cave is this shorter and less steep (but still steep!) sector. Shady most of the day with evening sun in the fall.
Take the right fork in the approach trail from the parking area to the Motherlode. The first wall you reach will be the Undertow below the route "Resurrection".
