Description

The East Face of The Thin Wall is a top-roper's dream come true. There is something for everyone here - from 5.6 to 5.11a. There are a handful of bolts up top (Congratulations and Count On Your Fingers / No Calculators Allowed), and where there aren't bolts, gear is required. If toproping, a short static rope or some long webbing is especially helpful.

The downside of Thin Wall is that on any given day, there are about a million people here which creates a bit of a circus-like atmosphere. Thin Wall is popular with the Boy Scouts, church groups, and every other institutional group you could imagine.

The difficulty of the routes tends to generally increase as one moves left along the face.

Nearly all of the routes can be led safely, except for Child's Play (5.10d) and Congratulations (5.11a) - the two leftmost routes. Although it doesn't receive an "R" rating in Vogel's guide, I have personally stayed away from leading The Face of Tammy Faye (5.8), as pro looks sparse.

Descent: scramble to the north or south (4th class), or rap off fixed anchors for No Calculators Allowed

Getting There

From Real Hidden Valley parking area, follow nature trail north to "T" intersection. Head left (NW) on trail. The Thin Wall is the prominent rock "fin" on your right.
