Description

This wall is predominately sport routes with a few mixed routes present. The climbing is slaby, the granite is good and the crystals prevalent. The Fall Wall gets a good amount of sun, which can be a good thing as it, sits at about 8000 feet. Most routes have two bolt rap anchors at the top. Some "Must Do" routes are 5.11 Crack (5.9+) and Cold Finger to the Hole (5.7).
Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 Details

Getting There

From the Vedauwoo main entrance ($3/car or free on foot), drive in and follow the signs to Box Canyon. There's a good number of parking spaces, water, and restrooms. A paved trail leads out of the North end of the parking area. Follow this trail a short distance until a path cutting left to the rock is found. A bouldery approach is unavoidable and the wall is best gained by scrambling up at its right most edge. Ah hell, you can see all the routes from the parking lot. Just follow your nose.

The route in question to the left of Easy Lieback we called "Busy Being Fabulous". Mitzi and I put this one up. It is misnamed "Sport" in Zach's guidebook. Sep 7, 2012

Yeah, the bolted route by Gunga Din that you're talking about is just called - Sport 5.10b - according to THE VOO guidebook. Sep 9, 2011

Does anyone know what the bolt line between Gunga Din and E.O. Lieback is called? It starts as for E.O. Lieback, then comes off left on to the face to the 1st bolt. The edges quite a bit more substantial than Gunga Din. It goes at about 10d, great climbing. It's not on the website named above. Aug 30, 2010
If you can't or won't fork over for the guidebook, or your buddies are short on beta for Fall Wall, take a look at vedauwoo.org/fall_wall.htm for an up to date topo. Oct 6, 2001
