Description 

A south-facing aspect makes this a great option on cold/windy days for those in search of some easy leads and a couple of harder lines that will be topropes for most. The rock is like that at Jumbo - larger crystals, a bit or grain, and some loose holds; it usually cleans up nicely with more traffic. Rap anchors exist at the top of Jeepers Leepers (1x3/8" and 1x1/4" buttonhead with Leeper hangers and chains) and Mother Board Breakdown (with newer 3/8" bolts, stainless steel hangers, with chains). The Stemski/Jeepers Leepers anchors is easily backed up with a solid 4" cam.

Getting There 

Drive into the Live Oak Picnic Area, just over a mile east of Jumbo Rocks Campground, and take the right branch where the road forks. Park in the third parking area you come to on your left. From there, hike straight back through the canyon and washes a few hundred yards until you can look back over your right shoulder and see the Whispering Wall. Approach up the canyon staying near the wall.

Begin by climbing the crack on the right margin of the face (My Three Friends) for 10' and then make some balancy moves out left into some huecos to reach the 1st bolt.
