DescriptionRemote, 600+ft tall, gneissic, "desert alpine" formation with detatched pillars, in a rugged, dramatic setting. The place is intimidating, few have climbed here, but there are clean lines amidst all that choss. Definitely 6 quality multi-pitched routes (known) and more have been spotted.
It would be presumptuous to claim any first ascents because this place has been known and climbed occasionally for decades, though first ascents are entirely possible. A few routes are named and described here just to give some idea. If anyone is sure of a first ascent, and some earlier given names for routes, please speak. Bolts on some of the faces could produce some incredible routes but would require an immense effort.
The ratings here could very likely feel sandbagged. As these routes were posted by Granite Mountain climbers, the ratings could be in keeping with the system at The Mountain, and reflect the likely ratings that would have been given by the pioneers of the Hualapai Wall...the 'ol Syndicatico Granitica
The camping at Campsite #1 and Shanty Town is out of this world!
Getting ThereSee the cheaper way to fly guidebook.
Approach is 1.5 to 2hours, the bushwhacking is heinous, though a couple visits revealed a best way. It is temping, upon approaching the elevation of the foot of the wall to make a B-line directly to it but it is wiser to stay wide to the west and then south and circle back into it where the brush is less tall and dense.
