Description

This wall supports 6 sport routes on a mix of sandstone conglomerate and breccia. Sunshine is limited here and the small canyon seems to funnel a nice breeze through, making it a nice place in summer even when it's rather warm.

  • *NOTE** Doom Wall has a seasonal closure due to bird nesting from February 1 to July 1, but is usually open by March if nothing nests.

Getting There

From HWY 166 drive approximately 2.5 miles, passing the Owl's Tor parking and Big Rock enroute. Park in a turnout on the left side of the road. The outcrops are visible staight ahead to the west from here. Follow a trail through somewhat of a meadow until it joins up with a streambed. Continue on downstream and you'll run directly into the wall. The approach takes only a couple of minutes.

Interested to see if Owltoberfest gets anyone on these routes. There's another in between Shotgun and ADK that I put up. I don't remember the name but, somehow, it wound up as a 10 in my guide and it's way harder. Mid 11 as I recall. Other than Shores, routes on this wall feel incredibly bleak, although there was a short time when they were fun when we did them regularly (like 20 years ago). Hopefully some traffic will shape it up somewhat. For sure, more potential exists here. Oct 25, 2014

New routes are emerging from the depths here at doom wall. Go check them out! This place offers a great warm-up (shores of hell) before heading back up the hill to owl tor. Nov 15, 2015
