Description Suggest change

Upper Dodge City sits high on the ridge above The Corral Wall. The main cliff is NNW facing and for the most part in the shade all day. The right side of the wall gets oblique sun in the late afternoon. The established routes are on the left side and include "String 'em Up" 5.11 b/c** (5 bolts right of an arete), "Lynch Mob" 5.11a* (4 bolts up a smooth face) and "Spaghetti Western" 5.11d*** (8 bolts up red wall). SEU and LM are on good gray varnish and SW is on dazzeling orange/red varnish. The middle to right side of the wall have many good looking crack systems.The middle of the wall has an unreported route which is a shallow flared crack up to a blank dihedral with bolts. The right side has "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" 5.9 **, a two pitch route finishing in a nice left arching crack on brown varnish. Across the corridor is an awesome steep brown and black varnished wall with a couple unfinished (?) bolted routes.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow Rattlesnake Cyn. to the Corral Wall turnoff and head right to Corral Wall. Upper Dodge City can be seen high in the notch to the WSW. It is the best thing visible up there. Head up slabs and ramps. There is no best way and it is boulder hopping the whole way.
