rock climb - geezer wall - July 16, 2015
1st (and hopefully annual) Matt Allen reunion party. Our beloved former co-director is in town and would like to climb. After party will be at Canyon Inn for beer and pizza. Geezer wall is easy-moderate sport and trad climbs. Glass ocean is just across the talus field with some harder stuff. Getting There: Be ready to hike talus. And as Matt would say, 'Floppies and Sloppy', so wear good approach shoes. The lower climbs of Geezer Wall are located halfway between the start of Steort's Ridge and Glass Ocean. Go up as you would for Glass Ocean then just break out left, and cross the talus field (loose stuff here be careful). You may pick up a trail from the start of Steort's Ridge that will take you up and left to a fin of rock extending up to Geezer Wall. Follow this trail up next to the rock fin to the bottom of the talus field. Then go immediately over to Whipper Snapper as the talus tends to be more settled next to the wall. Expect a 15-25 min hike from the road.
