DescriptionThe Left Hand Wall features a variety of moderate sport, mixed, and trad lines. Since the style of these routes varies, parties should be cognizant of when gear is required.
The rock tends to be less-than-vertical with horizontal banding. Similar to the rest of the Hairpin Turn Area the rock is a bit chossy. As such the climber should move with awareness and helmets are recommended for belayers. One should also be on the lookout for bee activity. There is a known hive nearby and there has been a serious attack.
This wall is sunny until mid-afternoon.
Getting ThereThe Left Hand Wall is reached by hiking through the boulder and sand filled wash. Take the path of least resistance, following the faint climber's trail when visible. Watch the left side of the wash for a trail the rises out of the grass to the base of the cliff. The Left Hand Wall is bounded on the left by the chimney and on the right by a 90 degree corner.
The approach takes 10-15 minutes.
