Description

The climbing at Bulge Wall is challenging, but far less powerful than Damage Wall or Power Wall climbing, with most of the climbs being less than vertical and having a good rest halfway up. The holds are mostly straightforward crimps, but require some thinking to navigate through. Trump Style Greeting, towards the right side of the wall has a cool undercling move about one third of the way up. The climbs towards the left side of the wall begin with tiny holds on low angle rock, involve overcoming the horizontal gap with balancy moves, and finish with slightly overhanging crimping.

Getting There

Bulge Wall is about 30 paces to the left of where the middle access trail meets the rock. The most obvious feature that distinguishes Bulge Wall is a 50-80 foot wide bulge of almost featureless tan rock separated from dark gray rock above by a long horizontal gap. It’s to the left of Juggernaut, on Damage Wall, and ends as the wall wraps around the smooth corner towards Radical Wall. See the topo on the main page for directions.
