Description

Even if you've scoped it out in the guidebook beforehand, your first glimpse of the Practice Wall will probably be a little bit of a shock. Most of the routes here are shorter than the average climbing gym. But for newcomers getting their first taste of climbing on real rock, you couldn't ask for anything better. Short lines in the 5.easy range make nice topropes for beginners and kids, and a climber looking to do their first lead can gain some confidence on Acrophobics Anonymous (5.4).

Practice Wall isn't just a beginner's playground, though. Hardcore climbers can test their crimp strength on lines like Beastly Traverse (5.11a).

Getting There

From the parking lot, head down the trail as for Bruise Brothers or Sunnyside. After crossing the creek, take the first trail on the left for Joe Ponder Hollow. Watch for signage pointing to Practice Wall and follow the trail to the short cliff.
