Description

Probably the most popular wall at the Butte. Rock is basalt and is a bit slick - especially early or late climbing season. This is a short 30-40ft wall, which has about a dozen routes, all of which can be top-roped. There are couple sport-leads too.

Getting There

This is the first wall right (looking towards the wall from the bottom) of Silver Bullet Bluff. Take Fremont road which turns into Rocky Butte Road. Follow this until there is a big 90-degree turn and you start uphill. Park on the gravel shoulder just left of the crazy-church-domes (resist urge to climb the domes). Follow a trail into the trees. The wall will be forward and slightly left of the main trail there.

Very dirty in early season, needs some serious brushing. Lots of dry-tooling scars. Top anchors are very corroded and of questionable integrity. Feet are usually very polished. May 23, 2017
