Chuckawalla Wall is a sunny crag, facing S/SW into the sun for most of the day in the winter. . While this crag offers a few nice days of good sport climbing, but lacks the broad variety that would make it a "destination crag." It is more of a stop along the way or one of several crags you might want to visit if you were to travel to the area.
The red sandstone here is an attractive formation, being mostly good, and while gentle on the hands, also a little slick in spots from the polishing of many hands. The climbing is on pockets, slopers, and crimps most of the time.
Here's an oblique, aerial view of the crag.
All of the routes are bolted and none require more than 10 clips. Each has a relatively good top anchor to rap or lower from. With the popularity of this wall, please rap to avoid destroying the shuts and chains over time. If TR'ing, please use your own biners or draws to avoid wearing the anchors as well.
The area is reached via a 2 minute hike from a nice parking area with nice clean potties and trashcans. The area is a free-use area and needs to be respected if we are to remain welcome here. Please pick up trash and stay on trails.
