Up Among the Firs Rock Climbing
Kathleen enjoying the stellar corner
A beautiful crag above the Petrifying Wall. It feels a little more remote as the highway noise is almost completely damped out and is in a pretty forest. It has a pretty even mix of trad and sport.
Some highlights include "Wicker Cranium" (5.9 trad) "A Little Testis" (5.10b trad) and "Totally Clips" (5.10b sport).
From the Petrifying Wall, take the gully up and right of the "Flight of the Challenger" area. Follow the fairly distinct but unmarked trail. Maybe ten minutes past the Pet Wall.

After the 2nd bolt, veer right towards a crack where the slab meets a bolted arete at a left facing corner.

Based on the 2001 McClane guide's statement that this cliff faces southwest, we went here early one hot July morning only to find almost all the climbs in the sun. Faces primarily SE, not SW.
