(a) Picnic Lunch Wall Rock Climbing
ALL 2ND PITCH ROUTES ARE CLOSED ON PICNIC LUNCH WALL UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO FALCONS. - 2/8/16
The 700ft. tall Picnic Lunch Wall strikes a commanding pose over the Crooked River as one descends the trail down from the parking lot. The Picnic Lunch Wall is flanked by the Red Wall on the right and the Shiprock on the left.
Despite its height and presence, the rock quality is generally sub-par compared to other areas. Nonetheless, there are some quality climbs to be found. There are a handful of worthy multipitch routes although many are loose fright-fests.
Walk up the staircase at the end of the bridge. Well-maintained trails provide easy access to the wall.
Descend via the Misery Ridge trail.

Pitch one starts at the top of the gully separating the table scraps wall from ship rock. Climb an easy slab that wanders right into a steepening water groove and exit onto the ridge through a shallow chimney (5.8). Pitch two consists of basically moving the belay 60' up the scenic ridge to the base of the final pitch (5.5). Pitch three is the money pitch that justifies the mediocre 1st and 2nd pitch.
