The easy routes
This is likely the second area you will encounter, and the one at which you will spend the most time. As the name suggests, it's the best place to setup camp if you're planning to stay awhile. There is a big nylon tarp on the ground, and a decomposing shack. There is an opening in the trees here, so on sunny days you can catch some rays while sending. This is also where most people will congregate, so on busy weekends, it can be packed. It has a huge variety of route grades, from 5.6-5.12. All are fairly short, some extremely so, with the exception of Blue Sky, the indisputable area classic. The rock quality is typically good; less sharp than other areas, with more tufas and pockets. As with all other areas, anchors are lacking appropriate rap rings, and consist of "keychain" anchors or abandoned 'biners. Don't lower off something you can't explicitly trust!
After your first view of the cliffs at Some Name Wall, continue along the path, passing under a fallen tree, and staying straight at the turnoff to Taiwan Boulder.

One thread... for limestone's sake. The feet disappear around the fourth bolt, when you traverse right on a bulge. Big flake on your...[more] Browse More Classics in International
