L to R R to L Alpha
Paleosol Wall is a ~50 foot tall, south-facing buttress that houses a handful of great roof cracks, mixed routes, and sport climbs. The rock is high quality, clean basalt that is occasionally blank and sometimes heavily pocketed. This wall offers the best routes and rock quality in the Land's End area.
From the "Y" at the top of Land's End Road, continue 1.9 miles south and park on the side of the road near a lone, bushy pine tree on the cliff edge. Approach the tree on "looker's" left, scramble down to the cliff edge passing a couple of large boulders, and locate one of two large cairns marking the anchors for Topographic Reversal and Roof Pendant. There are thread throughs on boulders above both anchors to ease access. The Roof Pendant anchors are a little friendlier to access (cairn on looker's left).
