Steep limestone sport climbing is what you will find at the Golf Wall. The routes are not long, in the 50 foot range, but pack a pump. The rock varies in quality. Most of the popular routes now have permanent chain-draws.
The wall is divided into three sub-areas.
(1) The Girl Scout Wall contains some easier 5.9 - 5.10 routes, and is located on the left end of the wall.
(2)The Country Club Cave contains the highest concentration of harder lines, and is easily located by finding the large cave in the center of the wall. A couple moderate lines are just right of the cave, everything else is 5.12-5.13.
(3)The Right Side has a good mixture of routes ranging in difficulty from 5.10 - 5.12 and is found on the right end of the wall.
Typically the best times to climb at the Golf Wall are Fall and Spring. Winter and Summer can also provide good conditions with the right weather.
Located just north of Glacier Club/Tamarron Golf Course, approximately 18 miles north of Durango on US 550. Park on the west side of the highway at a paved pull off (the old dirt parking area is now NO PARKING). The cliff will be visible on the opposite (east) side of the road. From the parking, cross the highway to the east side and walk south on the shoulder a short bit to a climber's trail that leads to the crag. About a five minute approach.
