Description

Just a few steps away from the parking lot, the Lower Wall is where most people will be on a nice day in the summer. There are easier routes on the Great Northern Slab as well as more difficult routes and aid routes on the Main Wall and The Country. The Lower Wall is generally very nice when it is sunny. The trees provide shade for the lower portions of routes and always for the belayer.

Getting There

Once you cross the train tracks, go a little left and find the trail that heads up towards the wall. The part of the trail that turns right stays along the base of the Lower Wall.

Finest crag in the land. Oct 30, 2015

Hello, we were bouldering at the Lower Town Wall today, and I accidentally left my turquoise blue Five Ten Women's Anasazi LV shoes there. If you happen to spot them, would you mind leaving a post so we can try to get in touch (and thank you in advance for being a good samaritan and looking here in the first place!) :-) PS the conditions were great today. Several people on the wall, but not too crowded. May 21, 2017
