Description

What the Rusty Wall lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. There are two excellent, steep cracks to climb here: O'Kelley's Crack (5.10c) on the right and Wangerbanger (5.11c) to the left.

Getting There

From Echo Tee, hang a left and, if driving, park where the dirt road ends at a gate, which is the entrance to Keys Ranch. Walk west towards the obvious orange-colored wall. Approach time: 10 minutes.

Murf - I'm just going by Randy's guide here. He categorizes Rusty Wall under "Echo Rock Area". It's right on the border between Echo and The Outback. Nov 25, 2002

As you take the trail west from the parking area towards Rusty wall, the trail goes between 2 rocks, and then branches off to the right from the main trail.
Do not continue on the main trail; it is private property. Often the No Trespassing signs are stolen. Rusty Wall is near the boundary and Aussie Foods Wall is almost right on the boundary. Anything to the west and southwest of those Walls is private property, where target shooting is legal. Dec 5, 2014
