Description Suggest change

The Court House Wall is the premiere wall at Shadowlands and is one of the best areas in the whole Canyon. The climbing is both powerful and technical, all on beautiful stone. Two of the canyon's hardest routes, Faith and The Gavel, reside here.

Getting There Suggest change

After accessing the traverse trail, go left for approximately 3 minutes. Take the left fork down the hill prior to the old mine tunnel and the wall will come into view.
