Description 

This wall is one of the most secluded sections of the Endless wall. There are not a whole bunch of high quality routes here, but its worth the hike to climb the Mechanical Bull (13a). Most routes are 5.11 to 5.12 with an equal distribution of trad and sport lines.


Getting There 

Take the ladders to the cirque and then hike for ten minutes along the base of the cliff (climbers left). Total approach time from the Cirque ladders is 10 minutes. You'll know you're close when you pass by the obvious 10' "Stalagtite" that is imbedded in the ground.

The Mechanical Bull will definitely draw you in if you ever walk past the route. You can't help but wonder what it feels like to mount the large rock that resembles a bull head at the first bolt. Start by heel hooking and breezing through some bomber jugs. Tame the beast by crawling on to its back for a no hands rest. Once fully rested climb through some small shallow pockets to a roof. Shake out and then get ready for a very powerful crux. Fire to a shallow two finger pocket, get your fee...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
