Description 

This beautifully black and green streaked wall offers an assortment of climbs similar but more welcoming than the Spray Wall in the main canyon. Routes range from 5.6-5.13. This wall is a true gem in my opinion. A classic for this area is surely ?Shotgun Pinata?.

  • Intercontinental is on the left boulder that looks like Africa. The other four routes are accessed via a fixed line through a hole in the back of the cave. Scramble up and squeeze through. Don't let this entrance scare you. The routes are worth the scramble and sub-optimal belay spots.

Getting There 

Follow the same faint trail from the Inception Wall a little farther and you will see The Plebian Wall on your right about 10 minutes from the parking lot.

Featured Route For The Plebian Wall
This really is a superb route.

Intercontinental 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  CO : South Platte : ... : The Plebian Wall
This stellar line takes the center of the detached pillar forming a small cave on the left side of the cliff. This short but truly beautiful line incorporates a variety of technical moves on bullet hard stone. It is very photogenic and sustained the entire way. This route was originally given 5.10c, but it feels a little softer than that, so tell me if I am wrong. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

What are the grades of the other routes on the fixed-line ledge? The route heading up from the right edge of the fixed line to the highest anchors is really good!
