The "cave" as seen from the trail. Route...


The wall immediately adjacent (to the right) to the trail. The cliffs begin about 100 yards after the Forest Service boundary is crossed and right as the creek is encountered. This venue has become the most popular local crag for Sheridan/Buffalo climbers, but you're still likely to have it to yourself. It combines easy access, great setting, and quality sport routes with a great concentration of 5.9-5.11. The cliff goes into the shade around 6pm in the summer, making it a great after work destination.

The majority of the Trailside Wall routes were recently retro-fitted with clip-and-lower anchors. This was done in response to the growing popularity of the area, to make these lines both safer and more convenient. I doubt any of these setups will wear out too quickly, but PLEASE TOPROPE THROUGH YOUR OWN DRAWS to help preserve the anchors. Some of the hardware was provided by the ASCA (American Safe Climbing Association), check out their website and consider supporting the cause, it's a good one!
