Most of the Easier routes at the Shredding are here. Shade almost all day and colder than the outside and approach wall

Getting There 

Opposite the Main Wall.

(Directions from Main Wall)
Follow the path from the pullout up through the forest past the Approach Wall, which is a slabby wall with 3 routes on it. Continue on the trail past the Outer Wall which is taller and steeper than the approach wall. Two options from here, either locate the chasm in the outer wall and tunnel through or walk up and around the outer wall and drop into what I refer to as the Grotto. The main wall is directly in front if you chose the tunnel option or on the right if you chose the up and around option

Climbing Season
