Description

Although hidden and difficult to find, this small wall holds many (HBs) lines and traverses. Facing the same direction as the Energy Wall, sun is often present through out most of the day. This is a great spring/fall area.

The rock is of good quality. Most of the problems are 10-25 feet tall and require good spotters and a bold mind. This quiet climbing wonderland is secluded and quiet. It is a real gem if you can locate it.

Getting There

Park in the 1st parking lot. Take the Ponderosa trial about 200 yards and start looking to your right (up hill). You may be able to the formation from the trail because you can see the trail from the Subterranean Wall.

Even if you don't see the rock start moving up hill (right) about 50 yards or so and start traversing around until you find the wall.

It's a rock band not unlike the Energy wall only it's closer to the Ponderosa Trail and parking than you can ever image.

Often one must wonder a bit to find this wall be well worth the search.

I plan to landmark this Wall for more accurate location in the future. For now this is the best way to describe its location.

I even get lost when looking for it so times. But once you find it... it's a gold mine!!!!

Luke, the name of this wall is Dragon's Den found by myself 15 years ago. I'd be happy to show you all established problems and give you there names as well. Please keep impact at a minimum. I've noticed large white tick marks on all the holds lately. Wouldn't want this place closed to climbing. Pm me and we'll compare notes. Jul 16, 2009
Hey thanks,
A few friends and myself found this sweet nook about 10-11 years ago and climbed the lines that I have posted and given photo beta to as well. If you have problems that I don't have listed or would like to offer up the names for the problems that I currently have posted please feel free to send the info my way. And yes.. low impact.. clean your ticks when you are done climbing for the day because we defiantly don't want to have any access issues at the Sisters.

Thanks for your comments,

My son Trevor and I have been up to the Dragon's Den a few times in the past couple of weeks, and we have cleaned and sent a few nice slab lines. Two are located on the wall "behind" the main wall (across a 100' meadow, etc. On the left end of the wall, there is a nice, tall, .10a or so face, and a V3 face near the right end. On the North face of the Den Proper, we have cleaned a nice V3 slab, and a V2 traverse. All are nice if you don't regularly send super-hard or are with children. Oct 1, 2012
