Big righthand section of wall above Topanga Canyon Boulevard, facing west, shady in the morning and sunny in the afternoon.

Often overlooked in favor of, let's say, Beethoven's. However anyone interested in fairly intense 5.10 steep face climbing need look no further - the routes are very good, and big for Stoney Point.

60m rope recommended.

Still has some loose flakes - leave well alone after the rain.

1) Left Edge 5.10b
2) Jesus Wall Left - Roof Version 5.10c
3) Jesus Wall Left - RH Version 5.10c
4) Central Route 5.11a
5) Jesus Wall Right 5.10c

Getting There

Use trail from Boulder 1 leads to the base of the Wall, a buttress to the right provides access (at low Class 5) to the top and anchoring options.

This is just some Stoney lore for your reading pleasure regarding the bolted sport / death route on Jesus Wall. Back in the mid 90's I was climbing with the famed Alaskan Big Wall climber Warren Hollinger on Boulder 1 when he suddenly runs up to his car, grabs some gear, and with a sudden look of intense determination asked me to give him a belay on this new bolt line up Jesus Wall. When we took a closer look at the line, it was clear that the bolts where in ridiculous and dangerous places. I was already half way back down to Boulder 1, when I hear Warren shouting " where the hell are you going " By the time I got back up to the wall he was already making his way to the first bolt and in perfect sync I got him on belay just as he clipped it !! I spent the next 20 minutes switching from looking for paths to run down the hill to pull in slack to keep him from decking if he fell, and watching one of the boldest accents Stony has ever seen.
Later that night Warren and I had a few to many Tequilas and almost got arrested at Cal State Northridge for a midnight accent up the huge Library wall there. Warren was all the way up to and touching the roof when the Police came around the corner !! Oct 26, 2008

Several anchors at the top require hangers (only threaded studs sticking up). Get 3/8" hangers, one size larger washer, and I found that 3/8" nuts do not fit. I used metric 10mm x 1.50 nuts and those fit great.

Or you can sling the larger boulder for the left climbs. Jun 12, 2007
