Description

The main wall at Wrights Lake is impressive: a clean, vertical chunk of granite with occasional crack systems that heads straight up for nearly 130 feet, with a 100' shark fin that juts out twenty feet into space. Black water streaks and run out bolted routes sit staring at you from above, and all the cracks are flared. What a great place to scare the crap out of yourself on routes from .10a and up? Most routes are in the .10 range, though the sport face climbs are harder, with the exception to the run-out "warmup" known as The Prow (5.10a), which is a mixed route out of the left edge of the cliff.

The main wall cooks in the sun all afternoon, so finding the wall on a cooler day is best.

You'll find the main wall on the the far left side of the cliff system that comprises climbing (except bouldering) at Wrights Lake, with a flat base above the valley on a shelf with several large boulders on it.

Walking off the left side of the rock or bringing another rope up with you is best for almost all routes, as the top anchors will not get you back to the ground with a 60 meter rope, and probably not with a 70 either.

Getting There

The main wall is on your left, hanging almost above you.
