Description

The Dirty Wall is most often passed up on a climbers hike into the Swamp Cave, but one of these days you should drop your rope here and enjoy one of the best 5.12 walls in the South West. With outstanding rock quality, clean route (despite the name) and a nice variety of 5.12 you will definitely not be disappointed.
Access is fragile here: no fixed draws allowed Details

Getting There

Enter the canyon and walk as you would for the Swamp Cave, after a right twist in the canyon walls (about 5 or so minutes into the canyon) look to your left for the main Dirty Wall sector. Chalk, bolts and climbs should be easily recognizable.

This wall is sick! I'd walked past it so many times but finally stopped and did a few of the routes. All of them were outstanding. Rock quality, movement and features were every bit as good as the Swamp Cave rigs if not better. Not to be missed.

Looking at the East Facing cliff (left side as you walk in) the route grades are:

12a, 12c, 12b, 12d (Planet Gone Mad), 12c, 12c

Enjoy! Feb 17, 2014
