Description

A popular wall with the greatest concentration of climbs in thge canyon. Beautiful smooth orange faces with lots of crimps, as well as two of the canyon's most popular routes, Community Service (.10a) and Valentine Arete (.8) The northerly orientation make this a good place to chase shade, but that means it can be cold on chilly winter days. Gets some late-afternoon sun, which really makes the rock glow.

Getting There

The first section of climbable-looking rock off the main (not upper) trail. The first couple routes are easy to miss; they start on a platform. When you get to an obvious clearing about a minute later, you'll see a couple chalky cracks and a large throne of rock. This is the base of Community Service. The bulk of the routes start here. Plan on about 25-30 minutes for the approach from the parking area.
