Description

Climbing here tends to be slightly overhanging with sharp crimps between sloping horizontal cracks and seams that can be sometimes maddening as you alternate between painful yet positive holds and smooth, rounded holds you wish had a bit more texture.

The slightly overhanging and generally technical nature of the climbing ensure most routes are in the 5.10 to 5.12 range with a limited number of routes on either end of the difficulty scale.

Getting There

The Hungover Wall is located 3.4 miles up the Keller Peak Road on the left-hand (north) side of the road.

 Parking is available for about 4-5 cars with additional parking located a short distance up the road. Once parked the walk to the base is 1-2 minutes.

History

This, the premiere crag at Keller Peak, was the original Southern California summer sport crag (1988) before the large-scale development of Williamson Rock and other areas. 

During it's brief heyday climbers were swarming the crag to check out the new routes, but these days it's not uncommon to be the only party at the wall even on a weekend.
