Summary

Chossy rock make helmets a must in this area, but the slabby routes found here are some of the easiest in the area. It's one of the first areas you get to upon approach, making it a shady warm-up.

Access issues inherited from Shelving Rock

Watch out for muddy conditions in the spring and for signs indicating closure of the Main Wall or the Big Wall due to peregrin falcon nesting.

Approach

Five minutes from the parking area, this wall is to the right of the Big Wall, up a stone-riddled path into the woods at the base of the cliff. Look for slabs that end at a low corner to the left with a large tree growing at the base.
