Description

VD wall is the large north-facing formation on the south side of Devil’s Punch Bowl. There are many single pitch routes as well as several multi-pitch routes. Most routes are well-bolted, if you don’t mind homemade hangers. But we found the old bolts and hangers to be quite solid and not an issue. Although most of the climbing on VD wall is face climbing, there are a few trad lines that tend to be bolted, as the weaknesses are shallow or flaring and don’t take pro well or often. Some routes have walk-offs but most can be rappelled from chain anchors. Also, there are intermediate chain anchors on most multi-pitch routes. The walk-off is a bit adventurous and entails scrambling down to the south and east, then hiking east until you reach the bottom of the hill and can turn left. Follow the trail back to the creek, then back upstream to VD wall.

Getting There

This is the first and obvious wall you reach when taking the trail into the South Area. It rises directly up from the south side of the creek.
