Description

There are a number of named sections along the Foster Falls trail; some are based on a noticeable geographic boundary, but many are arbitrary. The four routes listed here are not part of any named section.

The sections listed below run from right to left as you face the cliff, starting from where the trail ascends to the cliff from the suspension bridge at the base of the falls:

  • White Wall
  • So What Area
  • Crime Buttress
  • Right Bunker
  • Left Bunker
  • The Dihedrals
  • Jimmywood
  • Gutbuster Area
  • Sanford Wall
  • Rocket Slab
  • Rehab Slab
  • Snatch Wall
  • Red Light District
  • Zone 3 (aka Dog Boy Village)

Getting There

From the parking lot, follow the lower climbers trail below the falls; cross the creek and continue to the White Wall area. Or follow the upper trail above the falls (Fiery Gizzard Trail), then use one of two access trails on the left to get down to the cliff base.

I'd like to echo the other comments about subdividing this area. I am willing to help. There are three administrators, people have been asking since 2010. Where are you? Feb 24, 2014

Grouping everything into "Main Wall" makes this page almost completely useless. PLEASE organize or allow it to be organized into sectors. Dec 2, 2013
Admin, please subdivide the "main wall" into its respective areas so that the site is easier to navigate. Or else allow someone else to do it.

Thanks.
