Getting weather forecast...
This 70-to-80-meter wall at Mills Peak stands just below and east of the lookout tower. Routes include short three pitch routes and good cragging along its base. Most routes follow distinct cracks to anchors where you can set up to top rope or continue for one or two more pitches to top. Although its mostly prominent cracks, there are a few very nice sport routes. The wall gets early morning sun and gradually moves into the shade.
These routes are new, barely climbed and the wall has lots of lichen. Dont whine and contrast it to Donner or Yosemite, just help make it cleaner and nicer for the next. Scrub it off with your hand or a brush. Even though theres been much cleaning already, many details still need your help.
See photos for topos of routes.
Getting There15 min. Find a faint trail just northwest of the parking that heads down a gully just north of the tower. The trail heads down and gradually around to the right. Look for cairns and orange tags. If you climb the entire wall, you can walk back up to the parking or walk back down traversing below the Boulder Tower to gain the approach trail.
