That is the Measles Wall. Those eponymous pockmarks are all over the faces there. They make decent toe-holds but are very "slopey" so you really don't get a lot of good handholds. Plus, their ubiquity makes it difficult to remember/find the best ones for ascending a route: you're constantly inspecting a maze of divots for that one good spot.
Great late autumn place to climb, as it gets sunshine but is out of the wind. The wall is short, 50' is about as tall as it gets, but at this time of year that isn't a bad thing, especially if the temps are low enough to make fingers cold.

I don't think that you know what that word means.

Jim, It was just climbed yesterday. I think Michael wanted to run the description by Jay first before sending it in. You should get it soon. I may have a couple more to add soon too!

You all have been busy. It's amazing what happens when the bugs go away.

2 more new routes on Crane today!

Stairway to Heaven by Mike Prince and Garth Driscoe
And Post Op by Tom Lane and Jay Harrison

I climbed Stairway to Heaven on Monday and it is a really nice climb. solid 5.7 with decent gear. A little highball to the first piece and a little sketch at the topout but fun thought-provoking climbing.

Jay said that post op was going to be 5.8-9 range (there is still some debate amongst the FA party)
