As with the Grand Wall Area, the Grand Wall Base Area faces west, but as many of the routes are shorter, there is a lot more shade from the forest. This area runs from the Dihedrals area in the south to the University Wall are in the north.
See the Grand Wall Area description for the most direct approach. The area can also be approached by walking along the trail that follows the base of the Chief from the Campground in the south to the Apron in the north.
