Description

The section of the large Gate Buttress that is just to the right of the Dihedrals Area is the Beckey's Wall area.

The starts to some great moderate routes reside here, including the popular, eponymous classic Beckey's Wall (5.7) and Tarzan (5.10a). Tarzan can also be linked up with Tingey's Terror and Tingey's Torture to make one of the longest routes in the area (~11 pitches).

Getting There

Park at the Gate Buttress parking area 1.25 miles up the canyon. Take the trail that passes the Gate Boulder, heading straight north from the road.

A good trail climbs up to rock below the Dihedrals Area. Follow the trail right along the base a short distance, then scramble up slick third-class slabs to a ledge system and the start of the climbs.
