The Beaver Wall is the impressive, wide, orange, slightly overhanging wall visible southwest of Windy Point vista. It contains several high-quality, hard sport, mixed, and trad routes including Hebe, one of the hardest on the mountain. It also has some moderate, trad classics on the southern end of the wall. New routes have been established recently although first ascent activity dates back to the 70's. Prolific first ascentionists such as Hidetaka Suzuki, John Steiger, Bob Murray, E. Fazio-Rhicard, Scott Ayers, and others have contributed to this classic Windy Point crag. The Beaver Wall faces east and south.
Park at Windy Point parking lot. Cross the road and head south along the ridge above Beaver Wall (it may be useful to first identify the wall from the vista). When possible, drop down a steep trail to the east (left) and continue to the base of the Beaver Wall. The approach will place you at the right side of the wall near The Plate (5.12). If the descent to the base requires too much downclimbing, you missed the easiest path. The approach should take about 5 minutes.

Tricky start, tricky stances, one really good rest, tricky upper section. A really sustained route taking you up two different cracks. A great climb with a variety of moves on good rock. It is in the shade in the afternoon, and can be climbed on when it's blistering hot in the basin. Cooler temps are preffered though....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
