Description 

To find this route, head left (climbers right) after passing through the summit notch of the Certer wall and go perhaps 150 meters past a few large trees to an area where the wall is pretty vertical and the trail is broad and flat. 2 just-less-thatn-vertical 5.9's are there with anchors high up on the wall. These are War Path (left) and War Paint (right).War Path is the longer of the two routes and is primarily easier climbing with two short cruxes on solid holds (if you have the reach) or reasonable holds (if you are short) either way, the climb is a little easy for 5.9.It's a good route, one of the better ones at the wall.


Protection 

10(?) draws to a set of bolt anchors.There is a 'runout' of perhaps 20' between a few of the bolts up high, but the climbing though this section is relatively easy and obvious, 5.5?

This was my very first outdoor sport lead (6+ yrs ago). Big solid holds, tons of feet and even more fun. I'm not really tall but I've never had any problems with this climb, having done it repeatedly over the years.

Great place to bring friends that want to 'try' climbing. Have someone who can lead (and someone who can belay of course) and let everyone do laps.

A very popular route, along with War Paint. This area gets very crowded. Arrive early and beat not only the crowds but the heat. The sun will rise over the ridge by noon and you'll bake in the summer.
