Description 

The Left Wall is a stunning section of rock which sports heady starts that lead to wonderfully split cracks. It is the meat and potatoes of the Waterfall area. Many of the routes here were done by Darren Singer, Daniel Miller, and Jason Keith in the early nineties. Many of these pitches are regarded as classic. Includes all routes from Rising Sun on the left to Bladerunner on the right.

The Left Wall includes the historical sub areas Left End, Tombstone Area, Pinnacle Area, and the Sword Area, laid out in more detail in the Bloom/Wolfe Sedona Guide.

This wall gets morning sun, and afternoon shade. But, be careful because the base is overgrown and often shady...

Josh Janes and the Terminator.

Terminator 5.12 7b+ 27 VIII+ 26 E6 6b  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : *The Left Wall
Terminator is perhaps *the* all natural gear, test piece crack at the Waterfall, Really cool climbing that will challenge all parts of your game. Begin as for Guacamole, but once through the chossy roof band (arrange gear carefully here to prevent rope drag) traverse left on a series of awesome buckets to the crack. You can't miss it. Solid jams to a stance, then full on liebacking through a bone-crunching tips section to a final boulder problem. Hasta la vista, baby....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
