Gold Wall (which is privately owned) is open to climbing.
However climbers must follow the owners rules!
Rules for climbing at Gold Wall:
-No yelling/loud noises
-No fires of any kind
-No publishing routes in books or online (ie Don't post on Mountain Project or other online sites)
-No disclosing exact location in books/online
The land owners continue to have full rights over the Gold Wall and the right to close access at any time if activities occur that make them uncomfortable. We are very thankful to the land owners who recognize the importance of Gold Wall to the climbing community and generously have allowed rock climbing to occur on their property.
Access Fund is working with Tuolumne County, Tuolumne County Land Trust, private landowners and the US Bureau of Reclamation to come up with a solution to the Shell Rd parking issue. Please be mindful of where you park when going to Table Mountain, do not block private driveways or vehicle access on Shell Rd and remember this area is a high fire danger zone so use abundance of caution!
It is up to us as a climbing community to ensure the owner’s rules are upheld so please if you see something say something!!
It is a source of pride for local geologists, as it is an amazing example of an "inverted stream" formed by a river bed filling with lava, explaining its flat-topped, winding appearance. There is some disagreement on this subject, but the rock is Latite.
Presently, there's a lot of development in the area.
WATCH OUT FOR POISON OAK. The approach to many of the climbing areas is overgrown with it, and it can be found at the base (and even on the rock face) of many climbs.
Check out this drone fly-by for a look at Table Mountain and the surrounding area.
NOTE - THERE IS NO CAMPING ALLOWED ON SHELL ROAD ANYWHERE.
Open a closed gate at the presumed end of the road, drive through, close the gate, and drive (carefully, you're on private property) over some rough road. Continue onwards to a second gate (which is sometimes closed, sometimes open) and pass through. Parking is between this gate and the final (semi-permanently) locked gate.
