Description 

This is the first sizeable formation one comes to on the drive in, and offers a handful of less than vertical to vertical climbs on its sunny south face. The climbing here is a bit more technical and requires more finesse than strength, so don't be put off if the climbs seem a bit hard for the grade.

White Head (5.9) and White Out (5.10b) are two of the recommended climbs at this wall.


Getting There 

If coming from the highway drive a short ways past the kiosk and then make a right to reach this south-facing wall which is somewhat hidden on the approach. The wall is easily visible on the left on the way out.

This is the wall covered in graffiti and burn marks from campfires near the Pit toilet

Even though this wall is out of the main area, covered in graffiti, littered with broken glass and often an area that the RV'er like to camp at, it is a good wall, with good routes. If it was in the main area it would see nonstop action. A good place to go on a cold day, it's in the sun all day. All the routes are good, the best being White Out 10b.

I completely agree with duh about this wall. These routes would get tons of traffic if in the main area. They may not seem that exciting looking at them from the toilet but as soon as you get on them you realize they are all challenging and high quality. In addition, I like that the starting bolts are a bit further up as the landing is flat.

I found this wall extremely enjoyable and overall probably better quality (although much shorter) than the Warm up wall on Raven Rocks.

Good, all of them!
