Reaching the headwall on Legends. The start begins...

  • Guided Access Only
  • Some areas require a guide.

  • Description 

    The best 13a in America. The physical crux is right at the 1st (2 bolts). The pump factor continues for (3 more) spaced out bolts to the headwall. Get ready to blow it on the 12a headwall (2 more bolts) like many of your heros.

    Try to imagine, the steepest wall with the most shallow huecos ever. 40' falls are lobbed here.


    If you can find the Eagle, Legends is quite obvious. Start behind a large boulder with a bird poop cap on it. Clip 2 bolts, dyno and start pumping up and right. No getting lost here. Wiring the final headwall on TR is easy and so is the descent. Descent, cruise down the rocks to the East.


    7 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor. For the last hair raising part of the climb, the belayer connot see the climber. Safe but long fall potential there.
