Description Suggest change

This area is home to some of the nicest mixed 5.11's and 5.12's in the NRG area. Lines such as Tatanka, 5.11c, Territorial Pissings, 5.12a, Rock Jihad, 5.12c, and Heart of Darkness, 5.12b are the lines to do here. This area also gets all day sun which make it an excellent cold weather destination.

Getting There Suggest change

Although Orange Wall is located on public property, there is no legal access to it at this time. Access is complicated since the floods of 2016, which completely and irreparably destroyed portions of the rail-trail road. Park at the Highway 19 bridge, and hike about 2.5 miles downstream on river left. It's actually a beautiful hike! The prow of Orange Wall's right end buttress will be obvious as the river makes a hard right bend. Pick your way up about 200-300 feet of steep hillside to the crag's base. No real trails here.
