Nearing the anchors on The Waffle.

Road & nearby private property MORE INFO >>>


Climb up the waffled rock to the left of Pulp Friction. Start in a small corner, place some small gear then pull onto the slab above. Find some interesting nut placements and creative sling work to protect the featured rock as you angle up and left to anchors at 70 feet.


On the tan wall left of Pulp Friction, look for a corner leading to a featured slab.


Small rack to 2" and tied off knobs. Coldshut anchors at 70'.

This is a great little pitch! Definitely not R rated, PG-PG13 at most. The hard section is well protected with the climbing above only 5.6/7. The upper slab offers a couple good nut opportunities and plenty of chickenheads to sling to keep things sane.
