Description

The large west facing wall on the river side of the road, clearly visible before you go through the first tunnel.
  • Rock quality varies dramatically depending on where you are on the wall.
  • Pretty secluded as the approach is long by Gilman standards.
  • Multi-pitch sport climbing with some trad. Routes are 2 or 3 pitches long.
  • Definitely not full developed yet. There is room for more routes so have at it.

Getting There

Park before the first tunnel on the right or further up and walk back. Hike down the talus slope to the river and find a place to cross. Hike back up the talus slope to the base of the wall. The approach takes maybe 15 minutes plus time to find a crossing.

The FAs on Spectator Wall came before Beverly's climbs in the area. Tom Wezwick and others put up all the routes. Apr 28, 2009

Juan Lopez was also putting up routes at the top of the canyon.

In 1996 we had scouted some old pins and webbing but no other signs of development. Sep 4, 2010
