Description Suggest change

East is the direction most climbers take when they come to T-Wall. There's a phenomenal amount of climbing here, ranging from easy 5.6-5.7 for beginners up to outrageous 5.13 roof cracks, and everything in between. On sunny winter weekends, prepare to wait in line for popular classics like Art, Golden Locks and Razor Worm, all an easy hike from where the trail splits. Or to get away from the crowds, head further down the wall to some lesser-known but worthwhile gems.

Getting There Suggest change

Coming up the main approach trail, take the right fork below the waterfall. The trail levels out and continues along the base of the wall for a long distance. Approach time is around 20 minutes. The approach is uphill, but fairly gentle, the entire way.
