White Wall (the lowest big wall in the pic)

Description 

This is an area that sees little or no traffic. It is a great "getaway" from the Lowers when they are crowded. It has quality rock with interesting holds. Featuring a few hard sport routes and many moderate trad routes. Since it sees so little traffic it needs some serious cleaning before all the routes are climbable again.

Getting There 

If you are looking directly at the Lowers.... This area is to the right and downhill. You can follow an obvious trail passing the Hobbit's Perch? and Middle Wall on the way down. There are good climbs on both of these walls, most need some cleaning.

You can also reach this area from the main trail. If you are hiking up from the parking lot the trail breaks right at one point about halfway up. If you follow this trail to the right it takes you to the White Wall, if you follow it left it takes you to the Lowers(I think).

This is a bolted route between Dancing Girls and Return of the Jodi. The bolts are a bit older (but still in good shape) so I'm guessing it's been there a while. I haven't found any information about this route or what it was named. It's not listed in the Dixie Cragger's Atlas. On Michael Crowder's topo of White Wall it's just a blank #5 with no info. I rated it 5.11a for now. We didn't finish it clean and had to move back over on to Return of the Jodi at the top because it was too w...[more]   Browse More Classics in GA

OK people, we've re-cleaned, rebolted, and added anchor stations. Here's a suggestion. You can buy a whisk broom at the dollar store for cheap. It's not exactly rocket science to operate one :). Most of the time, a little work on rappel with a whisk broom will accomplish all the cleaning that's needed. There's almost no need for wire brushes which can leave sharp little wire pieces stuck in cracks for someones fingers to find later (ouch). How about a little help in keeping these routes clean and maybe even cleaning up another one - Lizards Tail and Dancing Girls would be great if they were cleaned. Thanks !

This is great that White Wall is getting some attention this year. I think it's one of the better spots on Yonah. About a year ago we cleaned Lizards Tail for a while and pulled a bunch of vines but I'm sure it's bad again. The top needed a lot of cleaning. I agree with the nylon brush. When doing things like White Wall I keep a cheap nylon tire brush clipped on the harness for the rappel down. Thanks for doing the work on the bolts and anchor stations. This should make White Wall even better. I moved to Virginia last fall but hopefully I'll make it down to Yonah to check things out soon.

I might head to Yonah tomorrow and hopefully do a little cleaning. Thanks for the hard work.

This is a beautiful spot! Have spent most of my visits on the Parking Lot Boulders or near the main trail. Just visited today. It is hard to get a picture to do the area justice (sort of like the Main Face) as you can see Patriot Wall and lots more granite from here. This spot is worth a stop just for the visual aspect.
