Explored this wall today. I have to say that though the routes look like they might be fun and the upper section of the wall looks to have great potential, the wall has a TON of death choss. Needs a bit of cleaning up before anyone can expect to climb on this wall without a helmet.

Let me know what is loose. What route & section? We'll go take a look and remove any additional potential loose rock. We removed everything we could find while setting. There will be some small stuff coming off, like any other new climb, until it is climbed enough.

Looked at that wall years ago when we were bolting dirt wall, funny it got bolted.

Have climbed here at least 3 times and have had a blast every time. The location is secluded and the view is great. Doni and Vaino did an awesome job cleaning the middle band of rock. It might look chossy, but it's actually solid. This wall boasts 2 of the better, longer routes at the Box. All the routes here are well worth the approach.

Climbed all of the routes on this wall and enjoyed all of them. The rock quality isn't the greatest, but didn't break anything off. Well worth a visit.
