Description

Huge wall to the South West of the Cathedral Spires. In the Shade a large amount of the time and like most of this area is windy a lot of the time.

Routes seem to be mostly more difficult on this wall and it looks very intimidating. Anybody with specific route information please post.

Getting There

Approach from the Cathedral Spire's trailhead.

If this wall were any where else it would get tons of traffic, in the Needles not so much. When I first moved there in 89 I met Bruce Thompson who was on the FA of Window on the West. He took me up the Window and later we did Kevizan as well. I would say that Window on the West is a 3-4 star route Kevizan 2-3 the roof by itself would be a 4.

I did Window several more times and would highly recommend it.

The only other route that I got on was Crack of Earthly Delights, as I recall it was just OK. Never went back to it so that says something.

Even though it's not a spire this wall is well worth checking out. May 30, 2011
