Description Suggest change

About 90' tall (whoddathunk it?), 90 foot wall is a well-featured granite cliff that is very popular and easily top-roped... thus making it often crowded!

The wall provides a good selection of easy to moderate climbs - both face and crack. To set up top ropes, walk around to left. Most climbs have bolts up top, but it is wise to back them up because some of them are old, and all of them see a lot of action.

Gets sun in the mornings, so climb early in cold weather and late when its warm.

Getting There Suggest change

Walk out of the Eagle Creek Canyon parking lot away from Emerald Bay and follow the waterfall trail (the big trail). After a few hundered feet, the path splits, go right and follow the loop trail. A little while later, the Vista Trail heads up and off to the right. Take it. Right before the bench that you may sit on to enjoy the beautiful vista, the trail turns sharply right. Don't turn right. Leave the trail and keep going straight over the large slabby rock, and about 150 feet later, The 90 Foot Wall will appear on your right.
