Beaver Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Beaver Wall
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.

This route climbs the tall, southern (left) end of the Beaver Wall. Climb a finger crack that widens to hands through a small roof. Belay at bolts on ledge. The second pitch starts off with an off-width crack that is protected with a large cam. Good wide climbing takes you to a ledge. There are a couple variations for topping out, the easiest of which is reached by continuing farther right on lower angled rock. Straight up thin cracks is better.

Watch for jerk-off rednecks lobbing rocks around here! Especially around the ultra-hard stuff near Hebe, etc..which you have to hike under even if you're just going down there to do Stems & Seeds.
As we hiked out recently from doing P1 of Stems&Seeds, I saw a watermelon-sized rock sail off and impact right where we were hiking about 30 seconds before...This was then followed by a volley of baseball-sized rocks...I gave this 13 year-old punk a good tongue lashing, but what I really wanted to do was throw HIM off the cliff to prevent him from EVER reproducing..

I found a rope hanging from a couple chicken heads on beaver wall above "climb with a view" on 11/6/09. If you can describe to me the rope you may have it back.
