Description 

Morrell's Wall lies in between the Sven Slab area and Gardener's Wall. It's fairly up on the side of the slope and the approach is a bit of a grunt. It seems to have fallen somewhat out of favor over the last few years, probably because of the access issues due to Arizona being up for sale to the highest bidder. There are some good routes up there that are worth the hike.

Getting There 

If you drive in as for Gardeners Wall, you will see a faint track on the left before you get to that turnoff. This can be followed south to the Morrell's Wall. I'm not sure about the legality of this drive-in, so you're on your own.

First I've got to say I only climbed the first 80' or so, I belayed and ended up rapping off from under the roof. This thing is action-packed. The first 35' or so is a tenuous seam that is quite delicate and takes thin gear. This is listed as 5.9 in the book, harder in my opinion. Gain a ledge, clip an old bolt, continue up into a slanting hand crack. Have fun switching from jams to lieback when it opens up. I belayed under the roof, but the route continues up past the roof, through another seam...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

Approach beta - once you get to the "parking area" follow the double track towards the wall. Follow the track as it turns left and seems to dead end. Continue up the slope in the same direction until you gain the left hand ridge. Follow this ridge, which has a cairned trail on it, up to the wall. We didn't do this, and headed straight up the gut towards the wall. Heinous. We discovered the correct way on the way down.

Much appreciated Sun2Stone! This wall has been needing a make-over for a while now. At some point it would be prudent for someone to replace the aging protection bolts on these climbs as well.
