World Wall II Rock Climbing

This notable crag has the ambiance of World Wall One mixed with the development ethics found at places like Smith, Buoux, and Riggins. Evidently, some climbers feel perfectly at ease pulling on 5.13 drilled pockets at Smith, but not here. For what its worth, welded tuft is reportedly much easier to sculpt and obfuscate ones handiwork; while at little si, manufacturings seems to stand out. Unfortunately, WWII wasn't endowed with the same geological features that makes WWI so innately climbable.
That said, WW II offers lots of hard climbing and no crowds. Routes tend to be a mixture of edges and manufactured pockets. The climbing is quite physical and reminiscent of gym climbing. Though I don't condone this practice, this wall does have some nice routes, and offers one of the best little si 5.11's (Orgasmatron).
The wall faces south and east & can be climbable in the winter if conditions permit.
Hike up the Little Si trail. Take a right at the Boulder Garden Loop. Switch back up for 15 minutes passing a smaller wall en route. At the sign directing Boulder Garden loop, continue straight through and down, eventually taking a side trail on the right. This will take you on a blunt ridge (recently burned) and to the crag summit. Here look for a trail on the left. Unfortunately, this trail was mostly destroyed last summer.
