This massive wall has a series of huge bolted routes that have an adventurous feel about them. The climbing is not strenuous but often involves thin moves or long reaches between breaks and the huge pitches mean that the routes tend to feel very exposed in their upper reaches. The rock is mostly solid but there are loose sections lower down on the wall, and on the ledge band across the middle. Guidebook page 153.
