DescriptionThis is a small cobblestone wall with 4 moderate routes on it. With a tame 15 minute approach, it's the easiest wall to get to in the canyon. The wall sees full sun for most of the day and is a nice place to be on cool, sunny days.
The routes here are fun, if a bit dirty still. The rock isn't the best and the routes are brand new, so climb and belay carefully. The rock is less than vertical but still pretty steep; the big cobbles and pockets give the routes low grades. The views of downtown and the capitol building are great.
From the top of the routes you can see a house a couple hundred yards above you. Please be courteous and don't make too much noise.
Getting TherePark in the lot right before the gate and walk a several hundred feet up the canyon on the paved road to picnic site #1. From the picnic site, you'll be able to see Hadrian's Wall above the trees. Take the obvious trail (that has a little concrete brick retaining wall) that leads left from the main canyon road right by the picnic site. This will take you onto the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. Turn right and hike the BST for 5-10 minutes until you're right below Hadrian's Wall and Hadrian's Boulder (if you've passed the overhead power line a second time, you've gone to far. Shortly after staring the trail you will pass under the first power line. The climb is just before the second crossing of the power line.). Follow a very faint trail straight up the bare slope until you're even with Hadrian's Boulder on your left. Cut right on a faint trail over toward Hadrian's Wall. Scramble up a couple cobblestone steps to the flat landing below the wall.
