Description

Because of its North facing orientation, The Circus Wall is one of the few that sees shade all morning in the heat of the Summer. The sun finally hits it around 2 O'clock and is gone again around 4. There are two main sections, one hosting long routes and the other short and bulgy. You'll find routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.12+.

Must do routes include Circus In The Wind .11-, Circus In My Pants .12+, I Love The Big Top .9 on the taller wall and Sucker Born Every Minute .11d, The Barnum Route .12a and Yankee Doodle Dandy In A Gold Rolls Royce .11b on the shorter bulging wall. For you bouldering sorts, Les Rocks! is a bolted V5 - with a sweet dyno!

Getting There

Located mid canyon. Best access from the 6th pullout (on the right). Walk downhill from the pullout and find the obvious trail. Great trail, with steps leads up to the Wall of Denial - check out the arctic chimney issuing freezing air!! Continue past the wall heading into the corridor, passing Raven Wall on the left and Ice Plant routes on the right. Meander through the rocks and up the small dirt slope into the old river bed. The first set of Circus routes are on the bulge to your right, a taller wall exists just beyond that.
