Description

After passing the few routes that make up the Friendship Wall, The Genesis Wall (Canyon Entrance) is the second cluster of routes encountered. The climbing is vertical, technical and ranges in difficulty from 5.10-5.12. There are a few trees that provide some shade and a nice level hang, making this a good place to start or finish a day.

Getting There

Follow the approach trail down into the canyon and this is the first concentration of routes encountered. It is located the farthest down stream from the pool.

Routes (L->R):

A. Gildenstern, 12-, 1p, 45', bolts.

The entrance wall has 6 really good sport climbs on the best rock in the canyon. The grades in the guidebook are pretty sandbag, so we have that going for us. It is a good summer spot to escape the Golf Wall crowds and get a really good workout in the evening. Sep 7, 2012
