Pictograph Wall Rock Climbing
A vertical wall containing several wide, black water streaks. The routes are long and the holds are smaller than at some of the other Maple
walls. Completing these routes takes good decision making and endurance rather than raw power.
The area is named for the pictographs that can be seen on the right side of the Left Fork
trail, just past the bridge. Andrew Burr

The climber in the image is on Kingpin
(The description of the image here
magazine's collection of wallpaper images says she's on The Emancipation of Dissonance
but it's wrong.)
On the right side of the Left Fork
trail, the wall is located directly across from the left side of The Pipeline
; beyond the fence-protected pictographs found just past the trail bridge.
The wall's right side is defined by a wide, black waterstreak that runs behind a tree, and the left side by a large, boulder-like outcropping up the slope on the left.

Two of the guides I had with me supplied conflicting information on this route (5.9+ vs. 5.10d). It didn't take me long to figure out which was incorrect. I was already tired from climbing all day and got so pumped that I lost count of my falls, and resorted to a french-free to make up for lost ground. I ended up traversing to the arete to make it to the neighboring route's chains. I'm sorry I can't provide more information than this for this route, but at least I can prevent aspiring 5.9 le...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
