You'll know you're at the ambush wall if you see t...


Afternoon shade. This area is a lot of trees. Shaddy and cool.

Getting There

should we maybe split this to lower and upper ambush?

Fun wall. Well placed bolts. 30 second approach.

I would agree with an upper and lower designation. This wall is a lot of fun but still a little dirty. Some air cans would go a long way. I counted a total of 6 sport routes. 4 below, 2 above.

so far so good. the wall is cleaning up nicely, still holding a few loosey's but with a little care you won't be ripping off anything. if your a moderate sport climber this is your spot.

be careful here there are some loose rocks... climbed this area monday 6-21-10 climbed the unknown 5.8 didn't think much of it but while I was about to lead bong a long a guy who also climbing there pulled a bowling ball sized rock off. there are also many pebbles and small rocks that get kicked off so be aware and WEAR A HELMET !

Folks, not counting the 5.11d that is rarely cimbed, there are only 5 routes here, and two of them share an anchor, so if there are more than 2 cars parked at the pullout, you may want to look elsewhere, or be prepared to wait your turn. Or you can do like some ass did yesterday--even though there were already three cars below, he pulled up leading a group of SIX, threw their packs and stuff right on top of ours, and proceeded to hop on one of the two 5.8's without asking even though there was already a climber on the route next to it that shares anchors. Large groups and impatient tools should look elsewhere.
