Description

The Wall of Wow consists of a main steep buttress flanked by some nice vertical walls. The routes range from 5.8 jug hauls, to crimpy 5.11 tech-fests, to burly 5.12s on the buttress.

Getting There

The Wall of Wow is one of the first walls you encounter after heading left on the traverse trail. It is easily identified by the timbers leaning against the right side and the steep buttress.

I was excited based on the descriptions but disappointed when I came to this wall. The rock is crappy, the bolting is funky/questionable if not stick clipping, and the routes were decent at best. The Courthouse wall is a much better place to climb in the area with significantly better rock quality and routes. Jul 5, 2016

Holy crap, Michalm...does that Liberal Arts University in Boulder offer a class in critiquing rock climbs? Why do you Boulderites even bother to come here if everything sucks so bad? Why don't you just stay south of our border, climb your own choss, let us have our fun and a few PARKING SPOTS why don't ya? The truth is, folks...this is one of the better walls in the area. Get on it and crush! Jul 5, 2016
