Description

The Wasp Canyon, like the For Real Wall (Quarry Wall under the rock listing), is actually an extended buttress with routes running 270 degrees around the crag. On the left, up the For Real Canyon, is the Metaphysical Wall (on the right). As you move down canyon the wall seques into The Wasp Canyon which forms the South end of the buttress. Moving right and up into ... one next encounters, in sequence, the Wild Overhang Wall, The Wasp Wall, The Beer Sluts Wall, and The Lumber Jack Wall. These all comprise the contiguous crag on the left. The right side of ... also holds numerous routes on a formation variously called the DJ crag or the Post Office crag. The Wild Overhang Wall possesses most the business, running into middle 5.13 on some very steep rock. This feature can't be missed since it is a 40 ft roof system with a tanning slab below!!

Getting There

From the old road below the first tier of crags, the Wall In The Woods buttress is on the right. It is flanked by the For Real Canyon on the left and the Wasp canyon on the right. A cairned trail will take you over some ledges and through a talus field for routes in Wasp Canyon and the Wall In The Woods.
