Description

Easy access and good top-roping make this a fun rock for a quick session, though the creek and road noise make it damn hard to communicate sometimes. We recommend a 60m rope for toproping; also, when tossing the rope from the top, watch out for the powerlines. Access to the top is via the right side of the rock. The chains at the top are set a little ways back from the edge; a five foot sling is helpful here. Be sure to put the rope through a 'biner; in the summer of 1998, two climbers put their rope through the sling only, and on rappel it burned through, killing one and injuring the other.

Getting There

At 4.6 miles from the entrance to Boulder Canyon there is a turn off on the right side as the road curves left. You can literally belay from your car. The Brick Wall is on the north side of the road.

Warning!

Per Adam Plunkett: this afternoon I was setting up a toprope on the bolts on the top of the route, and I heard and felt a large boulder I was sitting on shake. My partner heard it too. The boulder is more than big enough to kill anyone it hits.
