Description

This is a another short but excellent wall in Elevenmile Canyon. A mixture of sport and trad routes are to be found there. Most notable are the 5.7 romp of Loaf and Jug and the 5.11 thugfest up the magnificent Captain Cod Piece. There are discreet boulders located at its feet, perfect for sunbathing. Top rope anchors can be set up on top.

Getting There

The River Wall is located 6.3 miles up the canyon. Park just after crossing a bridge. The river will be on your right, between you and the wall. Walk downstream, back across the bridge and work upstream on the opposite bank. You will run into the wall. Descent is be either lowering from anchors or walking off the top. Cheers.

Note on access to River Wall: when the water is high, you can easily walk to the top and rap off the anchors from Skid Marks. Both hangars are loose, but it was easy to back up the anchor with a medium cam and a cordelette around a rock. Jul 29, 2002

You can also take a shortcut approach by using a fallen tree spanning the entire width of the river immediately below the parking pull off. (9/08) Sep 17, 2008
