BETA PHOTO: Topo for small area across from Ghetto Wall


Short and unmemorable, but decent rock for the area. 5.9 pocket pulling leads to a small roof. Ok to do if you're waiting for a route on Ghetto Wall or perhaps a mild warmup.


In the small alcove directly across from the Ghetto Wall, just after the traverse. There are three small routes here on mediocre rock. Nothing interesting but perhaps worth jumping on while waiting for crowds across the pond.

This is the first route on the right.


4 bolts plus anchors

Climbed this route before the lower bolts were chopped, climbed it again after they were replaced. We rated it at 5.8 to 5.9. The first three bolts are very easy and that last move to the anchors seems to be height dependent and I could see it being 5.9 to 5.10a depending on how you finish the sequence.

The first few bolts were 5.8-5.9, but the moves near the last bolt were for sure 10b, and then 10c to get to the anchors. This route felt harder than Kathmandu.
