Description

This description was excerpted from a comment under Irok and credit was assigned to the original poster. To help with organization of the database, this comment was essentially moved into a crag description.

Further west of Punk Rock, near the river, is a small quartzite wall, Wanna Be Wall with 2 bolted routes, a 10b and a 11a route which share the same anchors. They are unnamed warm up routes.

This crag gets good sun until early afternoon.

Getting There

The best approach to this area is along the base of River Wall (located just east of Tunnel 2), which can be walked (water shoes can be useful) anytime after spring runoff. Irok is a bit of a walk up the hill. This approach was engineered before the cable existed by sliding blocks over the ice in the winter of 2000. Using this approach, the first area you get to is Punk Rock. This crag lies to the west, near the river. It is actually just downstream from Mission Wall and directly below Irok.

Further west, near the river, is a small quartzite wall, Wanna Be Wall named after myself, of course, where I bolted a 10b and a 11a route which share the same anchors. They are unnamed warm up routes.

Have fun and enjoy this climbing area away from the noise of the road! Sep 18, 2006
