Description

And here it is, young evil Jedi, the wall where you prove yourself worthy. Feel it! Breath it in! Let yourself sucumb to the power of The Dark Side! And remember, good guys wear black.

Getting There

After hopping off the uphill trail you'll find yourself on a flat, fairly wide road. Turn right and start walking up canyon towards the Sunshine Wall Parking lot where you left your vehicle.

About one minute into your walk you'll see a very blonde hunk of rock with three bolts in it. This is the climb known as Erectile Dysfunction and the mostly blonde, Hersey's Kiss shaped rock formation that it is attached to is The Streaker Wall, which is home to some very impressive 5.11's and 5.12's.

If you keep on walking past The Streaker Wall you'll end up at a large section of blonde and black streaked cliff band with imposing 5.12's and 5.13's. If you keep walking to where the cliff band ends you'll end up at a section of wall with a blonde bottom which streaks to the left and moves its way up. This area has a handful of stout 5.11's that might be the best place to start your evil Jedi training before moving down canyon to some of the most difficult climbs in the galaxy. Beyond the wall of tall 5.11's (to its right) is a group of shorter climbs that are located up a slope and away from the main traverse trail. This is "The Space Balls Wall" and this little wall is composed of some shorter climbs that still pack a big punch.
