Description 

The Trophy wall sits in the Northern section of the sandstone quarry area. Steep routes on white rock make this stage-like area a steep-wall sport climbers dream. Many pre-hung draws and long, pumpy routes on great stone make this a great area to climb! If you are going to hang Perma-Draws, please make sure they are equipped with STEEL, as this area has been nitrous for sharp aluminum. Beware the sun... the wall is positioned to receive direct sunlight almost year 'round, but due to the steeps the shade has a clever way of sneaking around.

Getting There 

From the parking area, follow the main northerly trail into the wash. Once you reach the sign for "Turtlehead Peak" take a left on this trail. and walk about 500 yards up the trail. Pass the long rock formation in the wash called the Twinkie. Take a right directly after passing by the Twinkie. Beware the sensitive plant species in this area and stay on the trail - don't create more social trails! Keep going past the beautiful, smooth wavy south facing rock and you will eventually end up in the drainage next to the Avian Wall. The Avian Wall directly faces the stage/amphitheater of the Trophy Wall.

This crag is in need of some rebolting. Beware those heading out there- the first bolt and about the 4th bolt on the Trophy are quite bad. The second bolt on the route to the left of Powder Dry is bad also- there was some white tape around it today to warn people.

The LVCLC and ASCA have begun a major rebolting effort at this crag. Due to the softness of the rock, 5/8" bolts will be used for all new bolts here. If you or folks you know are planning on replacing bolts, please contact us and we will supply you with the bolts and bits for any replacement work.

Please check individual routes in this section for current updates on rebolting progress.
