West End Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: been on my mind....
The West End Wall is an intriguing spread of tall, morphed columns, and stunning architecture. Over the last number of years this wall has delivered long, striking lines which has created a full value venue. This wall is stained with dramatic black water streaks interfolded with other worldly swaths of vibrant yellow lichen. It's almost psychedelic. If you a are looking to climb a lot of hard routes in a day, this would be high on the list of sectors which dish out some of the most classic climbing in the canyon. From across canyon you can see a very conspicuous drainage/low spot in the top of the cliff. This low spot marks the top of Nyctophiliac, and Like A Shadow In The Night.
This wall gets morning shade until midday during the summer months, an increased shade during the Fall season. 65 to 70 degree ambient temps will seem perfect.
From the camping area, hike west along canyon rim.
Climbing Season For the Sycamore Canyon area.

This is one of the most unique lines I have ever established on basalt, and only seems to appear as you rap down it. From the climbers left side of the drainage at a large half alive ponderosa which juts off the edge of the rim, rappel past knobby horns, down 90' to an excellent belay ledge, fixed belay. From the deluxe ledge, tackle the slightly overhanging dihedral with thuggy hand and finger pods (5.10). Take a moment at the break before the rail traverse, and eye it well.
