Description 

A low-angle slab and popular spot for novice climbers. The east-end has a fair amount of easy and moderate routes with adequate protection and a good selection of rests. Mostly cracks with a sprinkle of bolted and mixed routes.

Descent: A large amount of east-side climbing requires you build you our anchor. If this is the case, you can use the rap anchor on top of Pure Pleasures or simply down-climb the 5.5 Summit Route to the north.

Morning sun / Afternoon Shade


Getting There 

Continue past Parking Lot Rock towards the left/north side. Continue down the trail, stay left at the fork and head down and across the creek bed until it breaks up and left, leaning east towards the backside of Window Rock.

The technical crux is getting above the lip, it is easier if you find some holds on the left.

In the center of the east face on Window Rock is a fist crack that comes down into a large alcove. This is Expect No Mercy. Climb the steep face past a couple of bolts to the crack. Pull through this pumpy fist crack roof and jam to the two-bolt anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
