Description Suggest change

The Stone Wall is a nice place to get away from the crowds at the Black Corridor and the Gallery. There are many stellar climbs in the 10 range, with a few 11's.

The wall is east-facing, and receives some morning sun, and it often balances being just warm enough in the winter with just cool enough in the spring and fall.

Getting There Suggest change

The approach is the same as for Sweet Pain Wall, but before arriving at Sweet Pain, duck left into a narrow drainage leading west. This corridor will make a 90 degree turn to the right and into the Stone Wall area. Climbs are on the left.

Alternate route description: From 2nd pull out take the main hiking trail down, at first signed intersection head uphill towards Sandstone Quarry, you'll gradually climb until a wide, flat area is reached.  Continue a short distance down (75-100 ft) on the main trail and then take a steep climber's path on the right 50-60 ft into the main wash. [This is the wash mentioned in the approach above.] Cross the main wash, looking for a path directly in front of you that enters a wash headed for the peaks. Follow this wash up. Keeping a bit to the left is easiest. The wash gradually curves back around to the right.  After 5-10 min the area flattens out into a sandy, open area. Turn left* (towards the gully that leads to Sweet Pain) and in 50-100 ft, while still in the flat, sandy area look for a 2nd branch left. Taking this will look like you're going to be "bushed out" in about 100 ft,  but the path soon reaches rock and a narrow gully-wash.  Up this to the left end of Stone Wall. 15-20 min from car.*continuing straight here, "on the flats", leads to the Black Corridor.
