Description

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to have a gym-bolted wall outdoors; one where you can climb in any direction and find a bolt within reach, then (at least the left side of) this wall is for you.

There are four routes on the left side in about 20 horizontal feet that ascend slightly less-than-vertical rock below a roof. Climbing any of these is a bit amusing, because you're almost always within arms reach of the bolts to your sides.

Near the center of the wall are a couple of routes that climb to and over a narrowing of the roof on the left, while on the right are a number of somewhat confusing lines that appear to join together. Finally on the far right is a wide chimney/gully with a route that ascends the right side.

This location gets late afternoon shade in the summertime, while in the early spring and late fall it gets mid-day sunshine.

Getting There

Located above and behind the parking lot/bathroom and the picnic area immediately right of the parking lot.

The easiest approach is to head up the narrow scree field behind the picnic area directly to the right (east) of the parking lot. A faint, occasional trail leads to the base of the wall.

It's very good idea to wear a helmut here. Lots of loose rock. Also be aware of stinging nettle at the base of the wall. Apr 9, 2012

The trail is directly behind and left of the FIRST picnic table east of the restroom. Then head about 250ft up the talus trail to the wall. As news to the area we got lost and ended up at hard rock by following the trail "east of the picnic area" Aug 12, 2012
