Red Wall Same start Master Beta(5.10c) sport Axis...


A low crux to some pumpy technical movement up high. This is a fun face climb that will surely test your endurance, but is well protected.


Follow the Red Wall almost to its end from main trail. About 40' before the wall ends, follow the bolted line that starts behind a giant flake in the ground. Line trends right after the second bolt.


6 bolts to anchor.

07-01-2012 - Big Ben from Columbia, S.C. broke two holds off this route. One is not so obivious. The second one is the huge 'thank goodness' jug above the third bolt right after the undercling. I'm eager to see how much harder this section will be. The hold was bigger than a cantaloupe and you can see the orange/reddish spot below the fourth bolt.

Just a heads up!

After the 4th bolt there are two variations.

1) traverse right and up(right of the bolts) for the easier variation.

2) climb direct (left of the bolt line) to the anchors for the harder variation.

A truly fun warm up route for the harder stuff in surrounding area. There is some loose stuff on this route so keep a heads up for yourself and your belay, but quality climbing nonetheless!

All protection bolts replaced 12/7/2013. The existing bolt holes were cleaned and reconfigured to accept stainless steel glue-in bolts.
