BETA PHOTO: Land's End overview.
Land's End Wall offers good climbing from 5.9 to 5.12. The wall is west-facing and receives AM shade and PM sun. Typically there is an updraft from the valley that becomes stronger in the afternoon, occasionally creating gusty winds.
There are toilets at the Land's End Observatory ~0.5 mile north of the crag (as well as an army of semi-domesticated chipmunks that the tourists feed) and free camping and bathrooms at Carson Lake ~15-20 minute drive south.
From Grand Junction drive south on US Highway 50 for ~13 miles and turn east (left) onto Kannah Creek Road. Stay on the main road following the signs to Land's End for ~18 miles. The road will "Y" once you've reached the top of the mountain, keep right and drive 0.5 miles and park near a patch of aspen trees. The drive time is ~1 hour.
Approach the crag from above on either the north or south end. The south end is recommended.

This is a fun route that throws a little bit of everything at you.Boulder and stem your way up to a green C3 placement ~12 feet up. Gain a flared hands pod and continue up the crack and arete until the crack becomes too small to jam. Make a couple balancy face moves to gain a finger lock, and continue up the steep corner to the chains....[more] Browse More Classics in CO

Great wall with all established climbs being worthy. Still a lot of lichen, especially in the crack, but will easily clean up with a little traffic. Great job!
