Description

Arbor Wall is located on the left (Dead Cats) side of Reimer's, and is the first major wall past Dead Cats and Rhetoric Walls. A large oak tree keeps much of the wall in the shade, making it a good choice on summer afternoons when the rest of Reimer's is roasting in the mid-day sun. There are about nine routes on Arbor Wall, all in the 5.10 to 5.11 range. On the right side of the wall is a limestone "flow" (a steep gully carved by an old stream) that provides a quick scramble to the top of the cliff, and an alternate way back to the parking lot.

Getting There

From the parking lot, walk down the access trail and turn right. Pass Dead Cats and Rhetoric Walls. Arbor Wall is the next major wall, just down from the gully mentioned above.

There are two additional routes located on the Arbor wall between Arbortrary and Mrs Johnson. I have no information on there names, but first route left of Arbortrary with a grade of 5.8 with crux at the start getting past the first bolt. The next route is in a shallow diehedral to the right of Mrs Johnson with a grade of 5.8 sustain throughout the climb. Jan 18, 2016
Warning: the guidebook skipped a route in the diagrams and has several routes labeled incorrectly. For example, an 11c route is marked as an 8. An unsuspecting new leader is going to be very unhappy on this route. Dec 16, 2017
