Midsummer Wall lies on the southwest side of Box Canyon and faces northeast. As you look at the wall, its right end lies below Hasslerís Hatbox and its left end is below the tableland that is atop the climbs in the Fall Wall Area. Itís heavily forested for Vedauwoo and holds snow late in the year. We called it The Midsummer Wall as thatís the best time to climb there. There are two established routes on the wall although other routes may have been climbed.
Walk into the Box Canyon. After a hundred or so yards, the top of a right-curving crack is visible about half way up the Wall (see the Beta Photograph). That crack is The Shortest Night.
Start at a tree and follow 3 bolts up a slab to the hand-fist crack exit. The route required extensive cleaning. This climb is reminiscent of FIUTT on Mt. Lemmon Highway in Tucson. And like that climb, it will become harder if the tree were to die....[more]Browse More Classics in WY
In the picture for Midsummer Sall, if one looks up and to the left of the big tree, several climbs can be found. These climbs can be accessed from fall wall (as if one was going to climb Hole, but continued to traverse right around the wall). One of these climbs has at least one bolt on it; however, the area is not listed in any of the guidebooks, and I've had trouble finding it on MP. Does anyone have any info regarding these mystery climbs?
