Description

The Bivi Wall is named for the ledge on its right end, about halfway up, that is "big enough to bivi on." This wall contains a few excellent routes on generally solid rock.

The Swallow Wall is around the corner to the left of the Bivi Wall, tucked away behind the massive, tilted boulder visible from the parking lot. It is named for the colony of sparrows nesting in mudhouses underneath the overhang, and features some of the longest routes on the Original Side.

Getting There

Find the Bennie Silva Wall and walk left along the cliff. Alternately, look for the massive boulder tilted 45 degrees off horizontal (the Inclined Boulder), which is clearly visible from the parking lot (and in the beta photo). The Bivi Wall is just right of this boulder, while the Swallow Wall is behind it.
