Description

As with the Grand Wall Area, the Grand Wall Base Area faces west, but as many of the routes are shorter, there is a lot more shade from the forest. This area runs from the Dihedrals area in the south to the University Wall are in the north.

The routes tend to be steep slab/face and beautiful cracks.

Helmets are highly recommended as the face above holds popular routes and trails. Stuff does come down somewhat regularly.

Getting There

See the Grand Wall Area description for the most direct approach. The area can also be approached by walking along the trail that follows the base of the Chief from the Campground in the south to the Apron in the north.
