Description 

There are climbs on the west and east aspects of this formation, which sits about a mile from the parking area for the Twin Sisters. Excellent, beautiful rock

Getting There 

Park as for the Twin Sisters, then follow the road on foot around the south bend heading west, curving around until you can see a line of formations extending NW from the Twin Sisters (the largest, most obvious, and most southerly of the formations - right off the road). It's about a mile hike in to this wall, and you'll pass other notable climbs such as White Lightning and Skinner's Roof. Faint trails will get you there, beware of sneaky cacti.

Yellow Wall 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  ID : City of Rocks : Yellow Wall
A steep, exciting, beautiful line involving nice patina and a sustained section of stemming, this out of the way climb is not to be missed, though my impression is that it rarely makes it on to climbers' agendas because of the approach (which is not bad at all). It would be great to hit this on a busy day when all the roadside classics have lines. Combining it with White Lightning on your way in or out makes for an epic afternoon. Skinner's Roof is also on the approach in.Start in somewhat of a ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
