The Unfriender Sport 5.12c
 
70
A faint trail runs from the road up to Vine Wall meeting the cliff near a long, flat log. This route is left of where the trail meets the wall and begins with an impossible looking first couple of moves. After the start expect great 5.11 face climbing. Steepness:

1a

Honey Barbecue Sport 5.12b
 
110  
Quality sustained face climbing at the bottom leads to a big move before the roof and an easy top out section. Continue to the top on excellent mid-11 face and slab, belay to make it 2 pitches, or descend from here. If linking into one pitch, back-cleaning or extending the 5th bolt (at the dynamic move before the roof) will greatly reduce rope drag. Probably a good idea to pull the rope and descend from the midway anchor if linking both pitches with a 60-meter rope. Steepness:

2

Poison S Sport 5.11d
 
50
Right of a long, flat boulder is this relentless finger burning face climb which will challenge your abilities with shallow pockets, poor feet, and powerful crimping. A steep ending delivers the crux just when you think you have a chance. Steepness:

3

Bottle Shock Sport 5.11d
 
40
Begin in front of a boulder with a bad left pocket and a good right if you can reach. Race through a series of bad crimps with even worse feet to a relief jug. When the tips cool down fire to the ledge. Stick clipping the second bolt is recommended. Steepness:

Undici Sport 5.11b
 
80
Around the corner from the vertical wall bordering the trail is a dirty face right of the arete. Pay your dues to reach the upper headwall which looks pretty good from the ground. Steepness:

5

Outrunner Sport 5.11d
 
80  
This is currently the first line on the main overhanging section of Vine Wall. Find a path through the vines to reach it. The first 3/4 of this line is not for the faint of heart but the rock quality improves for the final steep headwall. Equipped by Rob McFall in 2003. Steepness:

6

Forerunner Sport 5.11d
 
80
20 feet right of previous line, left of a small corner, is another line of similar quality. If you liked Outrunner, this one's for you. Steepness:

7

Shogun Sport 5.11d
 
80
Begin right of a corner and clip a high first bolt by scrambling up to a 6 foot ledge. 60 feet of terrifying climbing on sandy and fragile rock leads to a steep headwall with long reaches on deep pockets. Ledge fall potential going to the 2nd bolt so it is recommended to hang on the first bolt and stick clip it. Steepness:

8

Sweet Berry Wine Sport 5.11c
 
80
Another long adventure up Vine Wall. Consistent climbing trends from left to right with a no-hands at the 4th. Steepness:

9

De Vine Sport 5.12a
 
85
If you can reach it without getting swallowed up by the ground, there's another route further down the wall. Large but friable holds improve in quality as the line reaches a steep, upper corner of sorts. Begins with a first bolt on the immediate left side of a corner. Steepness:

10

Highway to Hell Sport 5.13a
 
100
Paw through ivy to gain a ledge where this route begins. A difficult beginning with poor feet eases up to a short but pumpy run to a sandy ledge where an initial set of anchors are located. Bail here for 5.11c or continue up through a section of extreme choss and sand to reach the beginning of an insanely good pumpfest that makes up for all the low quality rock surrounding it. Equipped by Kevin Cox and Mike Wheatley. The upper pitch of this route is well worth the trip. Steepness:

10a

Citizen Four Sport
 
110  
Begin just right of Highway to Hell. A bouldery start opens up to larger holds to reach an overhanging flake. Exit the flake to tackle a 60 degree roof which ends with a runout on deep slots to the chains. Equipped by Ray Ellington. Steepness:

10b

The M & M Goblin (Open Project) Sport 5.13
 
100  
20 feet right of Citizen Four. Begins on a cruxy slab. Easy climbing leads to a no hands rest before going steep on a mix of holds. Steepness:

11

Booyah (Open Project) Sport 5.14
 
95
50 feet of vertical climbing brings you to a no hands rest. Don't be deceived. Getting to the third bolt is brutal. From the rest the wall goes steep. Bring your 70 meter rope. Steepness:
