Description

Prayer Wall is home to several great routes, plus a handful of 'pretty good' stuff. The main wall has two well defined cracks ("This is a Six?" and "The Bishop"), and faces southeast.

Getting There

See Nick's comment, below.

If it is not too muddy, you can also pull one or two cars off the side of the road directly below this crag. Be sure to get all the way off the pavement.

This mini crag is worth the slog up the hill. A few good moderates and a few harder routes will take up most of the day with a nice view of the south bluff.

Park at the Old Sandstone parking and hike along the road and then straight up the hill after the yellow "Wildlife Area" sign but before the "35mph" speed limit sign.

An alternative approach from the "Roznos Meadow" trail, that crosses the road, will bring you to "Siamese Buttress" first then continue 200 ft to "Prayer Wall". This provides a longer bushwhack but less straight up the talus. Jul 14, 2009
