Long Wall - Your Possible Pasts is the obvious cra...
This is one of the few trad routes in the area. Your Possible Pasts is located on the wall opposite of the Top Rope area. The route climbs an obvious serpantine crack past a small bush and to the top of the wall. The route is fun, protects well, and would be superb if it was only a little longer. As it was, it was a very enjoyable climb. The only tricky part is the start, but easy climbing quickly gets you to the crack and to protection. Belay on top and walk off down and to the left (heads out around the point of Long Wall). Fun, too bad it's so short.
Small cams (to about 2") and a set of stoppers.

Good introduction to the local rock and a good warm-up for the area. Morning shade on this one.

Not a bad route, really. Kinda short though. This route seemed like good practice for placing gear on an alpine style route without the commitment of climbing a multipitch, alpine rock route. For what it's worth, I would say you don't even need cams for this route. The crack is very broken up and does not lend itself to cams. Instead, you can easily sew it up with wired nuts (heavy on the bigger pieces).

I climbed this as my first trad lead, and it was excellent for that! I used stoppers and hexes to protect the route and only used cams to build the anchor on top. Fun route!!

We couldn't find the walk-off to the left... the ramp starts promising, but then cliffs out. However, it was fairly easy to go right (upward for a bit), and then down onto the scree field close to the walk-off for the Fin.
