Wall of the Dead. The following routes are located on a steep west-facing wall, across a chimney and right from the big slab.

Isle Of The Dead 10a *
FA: R. Rossiter and Serena Benson, 2000. Begin about 15 feet back in the chimney beneath a chockstone. 8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor, 75 feet. Avoid the rotten crack on the right.

Dead Again 10d *
FA: R. Rossiter and Dianne Barrow, 2001. Begin 30 feet right of the preceding route and left of a large tree. Climb to an overlap, step left, then continue straight up. 6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor, 70 feet.

Sarcophagus 11a
FA: R. Rossiter, TR. Begin at a low roof, just right of the preceding route. Make difficult moves and gain a crack system that leads to the top of the wall.

New! The Dead Zone 10a *
FA: R. Rossiter and Pebby Johns, 2005. This is primarily a crack climb. Bring small to medium stoppers and cams up to about 2.5. It is a lead version of SARCOPHAGUS, but does not turn the initial roof, hence the lighter rating. Begin in the same RFD as Dead Can Dance. Stem up and stretch left to clip the first bolt on the Dead Zone. Pull left into the line and climb straight up, mostly on gear. There is one more bolt at a blank section about halfway up.

Dead Can Dance 10a *
FA: R. Rossiter and Glennis Walters, 2000. Begin a few feet right of a large tree. Climb an interesting right-facing dihedral. 7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor, 75 feet.
