About Avalanche Wall Area:

To the right and behind Curbar Corner is the large and impressive Avalanche Wall. It is split by a couple of crack systems that go at around HVS and protect very well, but the gems of this section are the face routes that start at E4 and work up to the infamous Slab and Crack at a terrifying E7. Routes are listed from left to right.
