Description

Pull down not out - how can you not climb a route named Pikes Peak when you are here, right? Rocks here can be brittle when anything other than dry (& even then, too). The route moves left after a solid start with a nice finish up to the anchor.

This crag faces West, so it gets afternoon sun.

Getting There

Walk up hill a bit from the parking area and pass the old Bach residence by the on the right and his old garage on the left. Next up on the left is what one might call the mini ripple wall, no routes on this little gem. Past the mini ripple, still on the left is the first wall with routes, Westbay Wall. The next wall after Westbay with routes is the Sayers Wall.

History of the Name

Eds. Apparently, Sayers Wall was named for a local climber, Ryan Sayers, who was killed in 2003 by lightning in the Wind River Range.

Thought the climb was great - this is an easy area to find rocks & routes - the guys who got it going did a great job - watch out for some holds still breaking off. Hopefully most of the people who climb here aren't as bitter as Rob. Feb 4, 2005

Sayers Wall is the third wall on the East side of the canyon. The first wall is undeveloped. The second wall is Westbay and the third is Sayers. As you are following the main trail from the parking lot stay to the far left. About a 10min walk in you will pass a pond, again stay left (on the wide dirt road). Sayers wall is the first wall in the aspens. The excellent guidebook is available for about ten bucks at the Garden of the Gods center where you are required to register annually. Mar 13, 2005

I knew Ryan Sayers and used to boulder with him in Ute Valley. He was supposed to be in Idaho with us camping when he tragically died. I wear his old climbing shoes and was really shocked today to find myself climbing on Sayers' Wall in his old shoes.... May 5, 2010
