This is a fun route. Too bad the name is not known. It is the 18th route from the left as you approach the bottom of the wall from the creek. Otherwise, this being the uppermost route, it would be the 1st route at the very top of the wall. This is known as the Bear Bottom Wall.

Look for a route with all orange hangers. Start on the left and move into and over a roof on your right. Continue up the arete and wall above to the anchors which a set back on a ledge. The rope drag isn't too bad. Overall, this climb is fairly clean and interesting. It is a good warm-up for routes on the upper end of the wall. Enjoy.


9 quickdraws and a rope will take care of the route and the anchors too. You might want to take a longer sling for the first bolt which is set to the left.

This route is called "Chrystal Highway", according to Bob.

Couple of nice new bolts have replaced old hangers.
