Description

The Western Wall Area is home to some of the finest rock and some of the the longest routes in the Alabama Hills. Approximately 10 different crags make up the area.

Getting There

Follow Movie Road North from Whitney Portal Road. The Western Wall area is located on the left-hand side just before Movie Road hangs a 90-degree right and heads East away from the mountains.
