Description 

Centrally located in the Ampitheatre, the Claim Jumper Wall is a tall northwest-facing wall with a variety of fun, well-featured routes and a minimal approach which make it a popular destination. Numerous routes from 5.7 to 5.11c mean a good day can be spent here chasing the sun/shade depending upon the weather and/or the crowds.

Of the twenty or so routes on the wall, One Armed Bandit (5.10a), Claim Jumper (5.10a), Coyotes In The Hen House (5.10d) and Brewed Awakening (5.11b) are among the best and come highly recommmended.
