DescriptionThe Gallery Wall is a broad south-facing sunny wall, located right of The Sponge and Dream Tower. It showcases a couple of sport climbs, which are rarely climbed (despite being near the popular Sponge) due to difficult grades and the need to scramble 50' to reach the start of the "real climbing". The two documented climbs are at the left end of the formation, and potential for more climbs might exist to the right on this wall, although there are many ledges and bushes.
Across the View (5.11d) is the left route.
Presumed to be Modern (5.12a/b) is the right route.
These two climbs start on a bushy but big enough ledge 50' up the cliff, which is accessed by a 5.2 scramble that might be protectable with gear, but most will solo it. A 60m rope just barely reaches from the very base of the cliff to the top, and back to the bottom, so belayers don't need to climb up to the ledge, but it's recommended, especially if they intend to climb the route anyway.
