Description [Suggest Change]
Though small, the Nipple Wall is home to the focal point of north-end Rotary Park bouldering, a tall, balance-y problem, named for two nipplesque knobs that provide a nice spot to chalk-up for and scope out the crux sequence on the wall. Being well-removed from the main bouldering areas at Rotary, one can often hit the Nipple Wall on a busy afternoon and have a chance of working the problem alone. Another advantage of this little alcove is it's north-facing character - on the sunniest of summer days one can still coax reasonable friction out of the face.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Approach the Nipple Wall as for the North Slab, but don't stop there. Break immediately downhill through the ridgeline just before the base of the Slab, and hang a left around some blocks, heading south 15 or so yards to the base of a large corner; the right wall of this corner is the Nipple Wall.
