Access Issue: Picnic Lunch Wall Routes Closed Feb-Aug Details

Description

The 700ft. tall Picnic Lunch Wall strikes a commanding pose over the Crooked River as one descends the trail down from the parking lot. The Picnic Lunch Wall is flanked by the Red Wall on the right and the Shiprock on the left.

Despite its height and presence, the rock quality is generally sub-par compared to other areas. Nonetheless, there are some quality climbs to be found. There are a handful of worthy multipitch routes although many are loose fright-fests.

Getting There

Walk up the staircase at the end of the bridge. Well-maintained trails provide easy access to the wall.

Descend via the Misery Ridge trail.
