Description 

So far, two routes exist on this wall, which are located on the first formation to the right just before entering 'The Ghosts'. The routes are located on the north side with the right most route presenting better quality rock.

Getting There 

Upon initially entering the DXM/The Ghost area, there is a campsite on the left hand side which is located at the fork in the road. Park at or near the camping spot and walk to the north side of the road and locate a trail heading northwest to the first rock formation seen. Once at the formation (Walkabout Wall), skirt around its northern side. Locate an alcove amongst desert sage brush. Within that alcove is a somewhat pointed arete. This is the first route on the northern side. The second route is approximately 25' to the right of the first.

Do You Come From A Land Down Under? 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Walkabout Wall
Start on the right side of Walkabout Wall on excellent north facing rock. Begin by making a bouldery start to the first bolt, passing a slanting thin ledge along the way. Passing the first bolt to the second bolt is the crux of the route. The climb continues on a beautiful mosiac face consisting of thin rounded plates, passing the remaining 2 bolts to a pair of Mussey hooks. The finishing moves keep you on your toes. Highly recommended! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

We climbed here yesterday. There is actually a third route between the other two. We tr'd it off the anchors of Chalk... It follows a seam/thin crack with a single bolt at the top. Appears to protect with small cams. Protection looks good, not great. We called it 5.9 and thought it was a god route.

This crag is very close, only 50 yards
