Attitude Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The right and central portions of Attitude wall. ...
With good quality rock and many routes in the 5.10 5.12 range, this is the main attraction of the North Area. Attitude Wall is the prominent formation seen from the parking lot and along the trail. It is about 90 high and predominantly east-facing, with several good routes on the southeast face, and one route on the south end. Like most of the formations in the North Area, the west side of Attitude Wall is a gently sloping slab while the east side is vertical and past-vertical. The center section of the east face is home to all the .12s; the .10s and .11s (and one 5.9) are found either on the right end or the southeast face.
From the trail that leads into the North Area, before reaching Little Attitude wall, look for a trail heading east to the south end of Attitude wall. Follow the rock around to the left, to the southeast face. Continue along the base of the wall for the center and right side sections.

Be aware that as of April 09 there are two active bee hives in this wall, one in a hole up and right of the routes on the far right side, another up and right of the anchors for Joke Book on the southeast face. This latter swarm chased some climbers from the 5.10b that is immediately right of Joke Book.

This information is regarding the 5.10b slab climb (left of the arete) pictured in the Betaphoto of the Southeast face of this wall. The big pocket/ledge picture up top has many smaller hole where you can put your arm in for a good hold. Make sure you look before you stick your hand in any of the holes because I saw a SNAKE!!! in one of them.
