About Sweet Pain Wall:

Description: Sweet Pain wall is home to several good overhanging routes. It's also home to, according to some, the easiest 5.12a on the planet- Sweet Pain.

Approach: From the parking lot, head down, take your second left. Follow this trail, and turn slightly right into a drainage area when you can. Head left at the crossroads (going straight will take you to Black Corridor) and follow this trail up. Some scrambling will bring you to this overhanging cliff. The climbs are on your left.
