DescriptionCrystal Wall is the closest formation to the parking lot and with around 30 routes from one to two pitches it is a great place to spend a day. Most of the routes are moderate bolted climbs on clean and highly featured granite. A few are trad, a few are hard, but most are in the 5.7-5.9 range and predominately bolt protected with some gear to supplement.
Always check road conditions and peregrine closures Details
Getting ThereThe base of Crystal Wall is an easy ten minute walk from the parking area. From the end of Road 14S29 take the obvious trail that heads south, slightly downhill, then up a short steep section. A scramble up the right side of the formation will access the rest of Chimney Rocks
Climbs that reach the top of the wall can we walked off along the north side of the formation. Some routes have bolted anchors and require two ropes to rappel.
