Getting there

The upper wall can be approached by any of any of the approaches marked on the main overview map. The majority of the routes on this wall are 100 feet or less, though there are some excellent routes that require two ropes. The easiest way to get to the wall proper is to head up the shoulder of the Capulet side canyon and the main canyon.

Last week, 05/10/16, my wife and I were terrorized by a red tail hawk at the Upper Wall. He seemed most territorial over Buck Up and I ended up leaving a biner on the bolt to make for a hasty retreat. For the rest of the day, any time we got over about 75' he swooped in but wasn't as aggressive as with Buck Up. Just a word of caution, don't get your eyes pecked out. May 15, 2016
