Description

A very cool tall wall with some exceptional moderate face climbs.

Approach

The Alcove is the continuation of the Genesis cliff line. To get to the top, walk down the white slabs on top of Genesis until they end. The alcove is the embayment on both sides of the prominent gully with the chockstone.

Descent notes

Walk around from the base of Genesis, or abseil in off the anchor above Trooper and Frostline. The gully with the chockstone cannot be descended!
