Description

This area is around the corner from Donnelly Canyon and generally faces the road (just over 4 miles past Newspaper Rock). It tends to be less crowded (just barely) than Supercrack Buttress since most climbs here are slightly more difficult.

Good climbs at this wall include its name sake, Big Baby, Crack Attack and many more. Nearly every climb at this wall is superb.

Getting There

Parking can be had either at the major parking lot at the mouth of Donnelly Canyon or a few hundred feet further down the road on the opposite side of the cliff. If you are parking further down the road, there is a cairn that marks the beginning of one approach the takes you to roughly the center of the wall. The trail from the major lot puts you at the south (right as you face it) end of the wall.

HELP! My friend took a nasty whipper and had to go to the ER, in short I left a size 9 pair of Astroman's and some quickdraws at the base of a climb at Battle of the Bulge. If anyone finds them I would be supremely grateful/can Venmo/Paypal. PM me Mar 23, 2015
FOUND: #4 Camalot. Maybe on Big Baby? Friday, 3/9? PM me with the colors! Mar 13, 2018
