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.

How's the .12 just right of Valentine's Arete? Jan 9, 2008

I gave it one star. It seemed pretty contrived to me. But I haven't touched it in 15 years and my tastes have changed in that time. The name is "Send It", FA is Ayers. Jan 9, 2008

If we're thinking about the same thing, I put that "anchor" in. After climbing the crack (which wasn't great), I put a bolt in so that I wouldn't have to leave any gear, since there would be no safe way down without it. IMO, the face below the bolt isn't worthwhile, either. Feb 9, 2009
If anyone lost a tobacco pipe here, message me describing it and I will arrange to get it back to you. Mar 1, 2009

You sure it was a tobacco pipe? I can see somebody leaving a pipe back at a sport climbing area but I don't know many climbers that smoke tobacco :) Dec 22, 2009
