Description

Behind the Scenes wall is part of the fourth ridge, south of Devil’s Punchbowl creek. This wall sits at the eastern end of that ridge. Like other walls of the south area, Behind the Scenes is north-facing. It is home to a variety of bolted sport routes and is distinguished by two soft corners, running diagonally slightly to the right. These two corner systems are the location of the wall’s two moderate routes, a 5.8 and a 5.9. There are several other routes in the 5.10 to 5.11 range, right of the second corner. Also just right of the second corner is a prominent feature known as the Ear. There are several bolted anchors for rappel.

Getting There

From the main trail that leads down from the parking lot to the creek, follow the creek to the east (left) downstream until there is no longer a hillside on your right. Find the trail heading south into the small valley. Continue past Purgatory wall and the third ridge, up and down through the scrub until Behind the Scenes appears before you. Head uphill to the right to reach the base of the wall. Allow about 10 minutes hiking from where main trail hits the creek.
