Description

Prison Camp's premier wall features hard sport and traditional lines on slightly overhung water-polished stone. While the routes are a short fifty feet they tend to be full value. The slippery nature of the rock, powerful initial moves, and sometimes sporty bolting may be off-putting to some; nevertheless, this unique wall should not be missed by those climbing at the grade.

Due to its northeast orientation and breezy dry riverbed location this wall is surprisingly chilly in the winter. In the winter this wall sees only an hour or two of morning sun. The best time to project these routes is spring and fall afternoons.

Petty Theft, Grand Theft Otto, and Cold Hand Luke are found at the left end of Jailhouse Rock. The rock is vertical to less-than-vertical and not as water polished.

Hard Time and Assault With Battery are actually not part of Jailhouse Rock proper but are further downstream and south facing. These two routes receive all-day sun.

Getting There

Follow the dry riverbed past the Dragon Tower and Guard Tower. When you reach the Cell Blocks bypass the riverbed drop-off by travelling either to the left or right. Moving up and left past the Mr. Meanor Wall will lead you to the base of the sector; Moving up and right provides toprope access to many of the anchors. If you choose to toprope yield to lead climbers, watch for people below, and be careful setting up anchors.
