  • Description 

    This particular rock is sometimes considered part of the Wall of Winter Warmth (WWW). It lies in a nook just left of WWW & right of Krishna. The older routes (put up in the 1980s) tend to be runout and steep; the recent sport routes are well protected. This entry was done to help with organization of the Lower Dream Canyon section.

    Descent: Rappel 90' from the top and then downclimb the approach gully. The newer sport routes all have lowering/rap anchors.


    A. Walpurgisnacht, 11-, 1p, 80', bolt & gear.
    B. Dachau, 11-, bolt & gear.
    C. Iron Curtain, 10+, 1p.
    D1. Fall of the Wall, 12, 1p, 80', bolts.
    D2. East Germany, 13, 1p, 90', bolts.
    E? Stalingrad, 11 X.
    E2? Waterboarding, 12, 1p, 90', bolts.
    F. Interrogation, 12+, 1p, 80', bolts.
    G. Eastern Promises, 13, 1p, 75', bolts.
    H. Blitkrieg, 11 R, bolt & gear.
    I. Weinachtsfest, 11 R, gear.
    J. Himmelbruch, 10+ R, gear.
    K. Checkpoint Charlie, 10-, gear.

    Getting There 

    Best to refer to directions noted in Lower Dream Canyon. Park at Boulder Falls, hike up to the hole up & L of the Falls, drop down to water level. There are single bolts set for an exciting Tyrolean but it may be best to climb during low water of fall, winter, or early spring when you can hop across on boulders or wade more manageable currents. Then you can approach this via a 5th-class gully.

    It may be possible to approach this buttress from Upper Dream Canyon.

    It looks like this crag should be called Dan's Wall...for Dan Hare, who got there first like so many crags in Bo Can. And then for Dan L, for getting after all rest and making this a nice looking 21st century crag. Way to go!
