Description [Suggest Change]

The Weeping Wall is a popular 300' high smooth slab of rock with routes up to three pitches in length. Due to the slabby nature of the wall all of the climbs here are moderate and range from 5.8 to 5.10c. Some standout climbs here include Surprise (5.8), Serpentine (5.9), Revelation (5.10a) and Ten Karat Gold (5.10a R).

To descend walk over until looking straight down on Paisano Pinnacle and then locate a 2 bolt anchor which requires a bit of scrambling/downclimbing to reach. From the anchors rap 80' to Paisano Ledge and then rappel another 80' from a bolted anchor down Bye Gully, the large break on the left side of the wall. After the last rappel a bit of easy downclimbing reaches the base of the Bye Gully. Those not wishing to downclimb can rappel 165' directly to the bottom of the Bye Gully. As an alternative one can walk along the summit to the north face area and come down just right of where the rock ends which requires nothing more than a long walk.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Follow the trail from the car and once you reach the base of the rock look up through the trees where you'll see this large slab.
