BETA PHOTO: Wallrus (5.8), Rock Garden, San Luis Valley, CO.


A short face climb in a nice little secluded side canyon. Not remarkable, but worth doing to warm up. This is Route #85 in D'Antonio (1999:46), although no topos are in the guide book.


From the roadside parking area, this route is in the first side canyon on the left, ca. 125 yards from the road. Follow the side canyon about 55 yards to a nice Ponderosa pine near the canyon head. Just past the pine, and before you come to a nice spruce/fir, turn left into a tributary canyon. Pass about 10 yards through some chokecherry, and the face is on the righthand side of the canyon. Wallrus ascends the lefthand side of the little face. A slightly overhanging crack with cold-shut anchors at the top is just to the left of the Wallrus face.


3 bolts to a 2-bolt top anchor with chains (shared with the Big Brett route to the right).
