Rick Weber flailing away on "Plate Tectonics" on the Tectonic Wall. An odd quirk of erosion over millennia created a plethora of undercut plates that provide great holds on this popular, slightly overhung wall.

About once every three years, the picturesque waterfall at the back of the hollow that houses the Bruise Brothers and Sunnyside walls, will grow a multi-tiered, spectacular column of ice that ice climbers have plied their skills on.
