The Double Clutching Wall is a stunning series of tall splitter lines which include it's namesake route, 11:11, Crux Deluxe, The Super Chron, Wolverine and more. This tan wall faces south, and is the place to be on cooler days.

This section of the cliff also boasts a burly web of scrub oak above the routes which makes this the most protected section of cliff at the Waterfall Area. If it is windy or moist, this is your best bet for protection from rockfall above. I'm not giving any odds though.

The DC Wall is on the far right side, and begins just past the start of Aquarius Rising where the Right Wall makes an obvious sharp turn. The first route around the corner is Rude Awakening.

Getting There 

Hike to the far right end of the Right Wall and turn the corner.

Double Helix 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : The Double Clutching Wall
Double Helix has gone from a vision, through the works, and come out the other side as a most endearing Waterfall pitch. Aside from the rack, you had better bring your game...Start out in an obvious tight, vertical stem box, a little bit right of the route 11:11. Be clever with your gear, fingers and toes because she comes out fighting right off the deck. Move up to the first bolt. How can it be hard with such big holds? There are many ways to do it, but thinking outside the box (pun intended)...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
