Routes in Black and Feathered Walls

Access Issue: 2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch Details

Description

The "Black Wall" lies just left of the Great Northern Slab (i.e. The Free Area) at the Lower Town Wall. It has a dark brownish color that contrasts with the neighboring grey rock of the Free Area, and the wall is fairly uniformly vertical. The middle-right side tends to stay wet longer than the rock at the Free Area.

On the left of the Black Wall lies a shorter wall of lighter color and different texture. This wall, the Feathered Wall has a corrugated, downsloping, and sharp texture with reddish and whitish rock.

Getting There

From the area just below the Great Northern Slab, walk straight towards the wall, going up and behind a large flake to reach a fairly level base. The trail should be obvious. One must do a few scrambling moves to reach the flake, but the whole approach takes only a minute or two.
