Lower Main Wall/East Buttress Trails Re-opened MORE INFO >>>


Scramble up lower step then ascend the the open bowl to steeper finish. Worthwhile route, though less distinctive than its neighbors.

fun climb. no chains at the top, just bolts. walking off is an option but all of the scrambles back down to the base of friction slab looked sketchy and loose or covered in brush. we set up a top rope anchor using our gear on the bolts and then traversed over to climbers right to the chains on the next route and rappelled off of those. be smart and make sure you are still on belay or tied to the anchors the whole time while transferring from one one anchor to another.
