The East End Wall

Description 

The East End Wall is a velvety looking, steel grey wall on the far east side of the South Side of the canyon. When seen from across the canyon several very thin lines leave a lot to the imagination. All day shade...

Rapture 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : East End Wall
Rapture is a stunning pitch, and one of the better basalt pitches around at the grade. Rap down to suspended boulder at 90', fixed belay. The first 15' of climbing off the belay is fantastic and bouldery, as you follow an arching seem with just enough holds to keep it in the V0+ range. Once you start plugging gear in the thin crack, be sure to take advantage of the best placements when you see them. Continue up the thin crack past several boulder problems to a break at mid height.

I just wanted to put it out there that the giant hanging column in the middle of this wall is one of the most frightening balance jobs I have ever come across for a piece of stone that size. I have examined the base of this column up close specifically inspecting its load bearing points. I won't go near the thing again as tempting as The cracks on both sides look. Frankly, after two decades of new routing, I have never had a section of cliff give me the heebee geebies like this thing. My 2 cents, take it or leave it. Elsewhere in the Volunteer section a route is described climbing up this feature...

Thanks for reporting this. I had mentioned such a route in a discussion on the main page that climbs up the left side of the column if you cross over to it after finishing the hand crack on Experimental Forrest. We had come into it higher so never saw or even considered how precariously balanced that pillar is. I'll delete my mentioning of such a route and let your warning stand alone.
