Description

John Henry is an American folk hero, notable for having raced against a steam powered hammer to drive railroad spikes and won, only to die in victory with his hammer in his hand... I figured a railroad name would be appropriate for the wall...

The John Henry Wall is the first decent climbable face on the trail, and it comes right after trestle #44. This will be on the right hand side of the trail.

The wall is relatively tall, and the landing can be heady (but not too bad) so I would recommend a pad for this one.

This thing is in no way clean and BADLY needs scrubbing. Its filthy, but the features are massive and fun. With some work this could be a great face.

Getting There

Just after trestle #44. This will be on the right hand side of the trail.
