Description

The Tsunami Wall is the clean panel of west-facing rock on the north side of the canyon up out of the canyon floor. It's black streaked, overhanging face is clearly visible as one descends into the canyon towards the Violince Wall. The wall hosts six routes and I know very little about all of them except for the one I've been on. The wall gets great afternoon sun but also tends to get hammered by winds rolling down the canyon.

See Mark's
Beta for the "Tsunami Wall". for details on routes.

Getting There

There's not really an established approach trail. A scrappy, loose, steep and not recommended path straight up from the canyon bottom has clearly been used but should be avoided. There's a better, yet still faint, track that comes in from the right (down canyon). To reach this, descend into the canyon as for the Violince Wall and continue into the canyon bottom. Hike down canyon 50 yards or so and look for the faint track traversing left up the hill to the base of the wall. Find a way to reach this faint track and get up there.
