Description

The Crescent Wall is a classic chunk of Lumpy granite located at the far east end of the ridge. It is easily identified by the Crescent "arch" that forms a big roof splitting the entire upper section of the face. The routes tend to be in the Five hard range with 2 X-rated exceptions. While a few of the routes do breach the huge roof, most of them reach a mid-point anchor and a rappel back to the base. If you are looking for a place, at Lumpy,where you'll see few climbers (if any) this is it.

Getting There

There used to be 2 trailheads that can be used to access the Crescent Wall. However, now there is one trailhead. Hike north on the right trail and then go east (and a little south) on the Gem Lake trail until the rock is very obvious off to your right. Then contour over to the base.
