Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


A wall of varied character, with many pockets, and with slightly less-than vertical rock on the left (uphill), and steeply overhanging rock near the right (downhill) side. The downhill side is buttressed by a striking arete with a lovely-looking .12c that runs along the arete.

A number of lines have been added to this wall since the Ruckman guide was published. In particular, note that the left-most lines are not the 5.10 and 5.10d listed in the guidebook. To orient yourself, look downhill from the left-most lines and find a blue streak with a large oblong pocket just above and to the right of a second bolt. This line is the 5.10 named Serpentine in the guidebook.

Sundance (5.10c) and Afterglow (5.10d), both listed in the guidebook are lines that climb through a section of obvious pockets near the ground and for the first couple of bolts.

Getting There 

Approach per the main page; following the more-used-appearing trail to the right below the short band of cliffs that guard the main, south-facing wall will deposit you at the wall.
