Katrina Wall is the north-most of the central walls of Voodoo Garden. It faces east and north and is home to some of the best routes in the Holcomb area. All routes are bolted and feature nice movement, sometimes quite sequential, with moments of airy exposure. Although there are occasional flakes of questionable solidity, the quality of rock is very good; most of the holds are solid and the routes clean, despite not having been climbed much at this point. Named for the hurricane that almost wiped out New Orleans in ’05, the route names on Katrina call to mind the flavor of the Big Easy.
From the lower sections of the Voodoo Garden, work your way north and west, past Peyronie’s Wall, across the boulders up the hillside to the base of Katrina.
