The Upper Wall Rock Climbing
The Upper Wall at sunrise.
This is the large expanse of wall that includes the routes Aphrodite
thru Kathy's Corner
. This wonderful stretch of stone is the location of many hard trad routes and several difficult sporty climbs. The Upper Wall gets early morning sun and afternoon shade.
From the Air Conditioner corner the Upper Wall lies above and to the right. Access to the horizontal ledge system that traverses the base of the wall is easy and straightforward. This provides the best way to the base of 3 Pin and most of the routes from the left side to the middle of the wall. Access to the left side of the wall for Aphrodite
and Dunn's Dihedral is probably best accomplished by scrambling up from the AC corner.

This was the traditional second pitch. It starts out steep and stiff for 15 feet then goes up a joyful dihedral to the top....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
