DescriptionA good winter wall for the moderate climber looking for classic 5.9's. Beware that most of the other routes on this wall are mixed, so take gear if you want to climb the 5.10's.
The majority of this wall is directly south facing, so this gets a good bit of winter sun from early morning to late afternoon. A small portion of this wall with some harder climbing is west facing, although you will be happy for cooler temps on these climbs.
From Left to Right the climbs are:
London Fog 5.11, Sport
Public Intoxication (5.10d, mixed)
Climbing While Intoxicated (5.10b, mixed)
Brain Cramps (5.12 a/b, mixed)
Spinal Spasms (5.11, mixed)
Barfly Blues (5.9, Sport)
Meat Market (5.10c, Sport)
Another Round (5.9, Sport)
Get Shorty (5.11++, Sport)
Power Play (5.12b, Sport)
As stated in the comment by Karl Kiser, There are four additional routes on lower Alcohol Wall South. They are as follows from left to right:
Just Plain Stupid (5.7, mixed): Use gear at bottom. The route shares anchor and top two bolts with Plate Techtonics.
Plate Techtonics (5.10/5.10+, sport)
Blitzed (5.8, sport): shares anchor with Twisted
Twisted (5.8, sport)
Getting ThereHike past Major Wall and follow trails that wind steeply up to the cliff base. There are two trails that will take you to the wall, one of which involves some slight scrambling. Once you get near the cliff make take a right and scramble up a short section. (A left takes you to Pocket Change Wall). Duck underneath a tree and you will be at the start of Public Intoxication.
