Description 

These walls lie between the Lower Town Wall and the Inner Town Walls, mainly along the side of the canyon going up to the Inner Walls. The rock texture varies considerably, providing a lot of variety. Some areas are quite shady and cool, similar to the Inner Town Walls.


Getting There 

Start from the Lower Town Wall parking lot. Several of the walls are as close as the Lower Wall, while the furthest away, K-Cliff, is only about a 10-minute walk.

Crimp up the fun dike past 2 bolts. After clipping the second bolt, leave the dike and climb directly up the face above and mantel onto a ledge. Fish in a small stopper behind the horn. From here, you have two options - go up and right past a bulge where you can get a good .75 inch cam and pull up onto a stance, or trend up and left across the face and follow a small corner up and right to the same stance.
