Description 

Rather small wall with only three routes on it. The main feature of this wall is the long and exposed knife like arete which hosts 'Trail of Tears'. Another great climb is the super relentless 'Bare-Fisted Grizzly Killer'.


Getting There 

About a 15 min hike to get to this wall. Located just before the Purgatory wall.

The climber's enemies are fear, apathy, love-handles, soft hands and self-doubt. After a good day of battling these incidious advesaries and beating ones self to a bloody pulp, it is a good idea to end the day with a Peace Pipe...or start with one, depending on the battle you have to fight that day. This route is a long, slightly overhung line with killer moves and a battle of the bulge that only has one good rest before the final push into enemy territory and the anchors. Do this route!

Lost phone somewhere at the base of this wall. If you've found it, pls email mariannalynn11@yahoo.com. Fun climbs distracted us from managing our less necessary gear.
