Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!


Major is located directly below the cross and is just right of Minor and abuts the Smooth Sole Wall. It is one of the largest formations in the area and home to a number of aid routes on it's north face as well as A Major Concept (5.12 or C2) on the west face. Directly behind the west face is the Friction Slab (5.7) which climbs a smooth face on a perched slab of rock.

Getting There 

Easily approached from above or below via the paved road.
