Description 

One of the most famous sections of the edge and rightly so. The climbs here are stunning to climb, and stunning to look at.

The area is dominated by the prominent aretes taken by Ulysses and Archangel and the deep cleft in between them taken by Goliath's Groove.

Getting There 

Hike up from the Plantation parking and you'll hit this area.

Now repeat the same move for 35 feet until a final difficult move gains the break at halfway.With the break and protection reached, place gear and enjoy the remainder of a true gritstone classic....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
