Description

This is the "main wall" of Rocks State Park.

The BREAKAWAY WALL hosts the longest top-rope routes, pushing 80+ feet in length. Be sure both ends of your rope reach the ground before trying these climbs!Although Indys guide recommends a 50m rope minimum, I would say 60m to be safe.

You'll need gear for most anchors here (there are a few natural anchors but will have to be used with your gear placements) and the anchors are usually set from either the EPITAPH WALL (for those climbs left of Vertical) or the platform 15 feet lower down (for Vertical and Piney).

Getting There

Accessible only by an exposed 4th class/5.l downclimb scramble down past "The Pinnacle Area" (aka Strawberry Jam Pillar). Please be very careful when going down/up this area (especially when it's wet). A fall could spell BAD NEWS (Death perhaps). Rope up if you have to.
