The One Wall is a beautiful 50ft sheet of overhanging dacite high on Mt. Elden, overlooking the Flag Mall and East Flag. There are five routes with the possibility of a few variations. All routes have fixed draws(except for Sparks - a short and vicious angling tips crack) and lowering anchors.
Drive to the top of Mt. Elden(high clearance recommended) and park at the pullout and gate a couple hundred yards from the radio towers and lookout tower. Hike up near the summit and locate the top of the Elden Lookout Trail on the Northern side. Hike down the Lookout trail, but after a few minutes, leave it behind when you reach the obvious ridgeline that heads northeast. Follow this ridge on a faint trail, passing one ridge that forks to the right. Continue NE along the ridge. The trail will disappear and you will experience steeper boulder hopping. Stay on top of the ridge(don't get sucked left by easier terrain) and boulderhop down to an obvious viewpoint(you'll know it when you get there). Cut down the gully to the RIGHT for 100 yards, and then cut left at the first opportunity through a passage in the rocks. Continue down 150 feet further and the One Wall will appear on your right. 30 minutes from truck.

Topical Rush 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ E7 6c AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : The One Wall
Topical Rush is the most bad ass sport climb on Mt. Elden. 50 feet of overhanging and featured dacite is a rare find in the Flagstaff area. The crux move down low is HARD and pinkie intensive. After the crux, a couple moves bring you to a decent rest. Crank through intense bouldery moves on some of the coolest holds I've ever found on Elden, then execute a big lunge to the top of the wall. Like all the routes on this wall, be sure to top out, or it doesn't count. Incredible climb!...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
