Description 

The Madame Grunnebaum's Wulst wall has good easy routes on either side - both Southern Pillar and Northern Pillar are excellent excursions for beginners.

Start up easy terrain just left of Madame Grunnebaum's Wulst, working right and up into large left-facing dihedrals. Finding the easiest line requires a little thought as you climb through corners and overhangs. You'll end up at the ledge atop Madame G's.


Location 

Just left of the Madame G's area.

Descent: bolted rap station at the front, north side of the ledge on top of Madame G's.

Protection 

A small rack should suffice.

Goodness, this was gardening all the way up. Very dirty and vegetated. That said, it was fun, easy and felt a bit like adventure climbing. I wouldn't do it again!

(We were looking for an easy lead for my climbing partner)
