Description

Hidden from view and guarded by a steep hike which goes up and then back down is this cool north-facing wall which sits below the Generation Wall and above the top of the Waterfall Wall. The wall is broken into two halves, an upper and lower area, each with it's own flavor. The left side is steeper and is where the more difficult climbs are located while the right side tends to be slabby to vertical and is where the easier climbs are found.

With over a dozen routes here from 5.9 to 5.12c you can spend a pleasant day here climbing high above the crowds and confusion of the lower areas. Recommended routes here include Broken (5.10c), Stormin' the Castle (5.10d), Pretty Hate Machine (5.11d) and Secret Garden Variation (5.12a).
Williamson Rock is currently closed to climbing. Details

Getting There

Approach as for the Generation Wall but continue past it down the approach gully where the routes will be on your right. Another option to approach this area is to climb Wicked Chimney to the top of the Waterfall Wall which will save you a lot of walking. The approach takes roughly 30-45 minutes from the closest parking area.
