Warning Access Issue: Warning for the Great Northern Slab and Sonic Slab areas on the west (left) end DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

Probably the most crowded area at the Lower Wall on nice summer days, the Main Wall also has the highest route density and many awesome high-quality routes.

Getting There Suggest change

Approach as for the Great Northern Slab, but follow the trail right along the base of the cliff.

Sun & Shade Suggest change

Routes Mostly Face: Southeast
Sunny Roughly 9am to 3pm during high season
6am
8pm
Details: Lowest parts of the wall are generally steepest and surrounded by trees, meaning that the lowest parts are more likely to have partial shade. Also, the wall slightly bows out, so routes furthest right may see earlier sun, those furthest left, later sun.
