Circus Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Grither Wall- 100yds right of Question Wall
Because of its North facing orientation, The Circus Wall is one of the few that sees shade all morning in the heat of the Summer. The sun finally hits it around 2 O'clock and is gone again around 4. There are two main sections, one hosting long routes and the other short and bulgy. You'll find routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.12+.
Must do routes include Circus In The Wind .11-, Circus In My Pants .12+, I Love The Big Top .9 on the taller wall and Sucker Born Every Minute .11d, The Barnum Route .12a and Yankee Doodle Dandy In A Gold Rolls Royce .11b on the shorter bulging wall. For you bouldering sorts, Les Rocks! is a bolted V5 - with a sweet dyno!
Located mid canyon. Best access from the 5th pullout (on the right). Walk downhill from the pullout and find the obvious trail. Great trail, with steps leads up to the Wall of Denial - check out the arctic chimney issuing freezing air!! Continue past the wall heading into the corridor, passing Raven Wall on the left. A few new routes will appear on the right (not in recent guidebooks), the first lines of 'Lower Circus Wall'. The main wall (in recent guidebooks) is uphill past boulders in the trees.

I climb for routes like this! Five stars! Awesome movement on pockets, sidepulls, crimps will make you grin from ear to ear! A couple of thin moves lead to a sidepull flake near the top. Get ready to rumble as the holds close down to a few crimps and knobs just before the chains....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
