Description

This wall has long been mostly disregarded. In the Thomas Kelley guidebook the topo described an all traditional area with three (5.10's) and a (5.9+). I'm assuming the rebolting project in the 90's led to some of these routes getting the retro bolt face lift.

Either way not a lot of people climb this wall. I cleared out the briars from under the start of the two sport routes cliff left of The Arborist on Red Wall.

Getting There

From Davids Castle Wall follow the trail leading cliff right. The easiest way is to find The Arborist(5.10) on Red Wall. Rising Sun Wall is cliff left.
