Description 

This area that catches Morning Sun consists of numerous Trad climb. Some of these routes consist of excellent quality Rock While others will always remain a true chugach choss experience. A number of these routes are overhanging or located in that he trails that tend to stay dry which can be a nice Ace in the Hole.

Getting There 

This wall is conveniently located along the approach Trail to the Sunnyside and Republic of Boulder. From the Worthington parking lot follow the paved trail to the viewing platform. Walk around the upper side of the lake then follow a stream up River a couple hundred yards. A tyrolean Traverse will get you across the water. From here you can either take the approach Trail to the base of the cliff or Hike The Ridge and repel in from a set of fixed anchors located a few hundred feet Beyond The Stream Crossing on top of the ridge. To find the trail that leads to the base of the climb turn right after the tyrolean and walk Downstream until you find a trail that leads up into the next Valley. It parallels a small hidden stream, staying on a bench located to the left of the running water. This Trail has seen considerable work and is in good condition making it a very different experience than in the past.
