Rodeo Wall

Washington > Southwest Cascades > Pinto Rock
Access Issue: Access to Pinto Rock is OPEN! Mmmm... Cobbles :) Details

Description

Rodeo Wall is located just a few hundred meters Northeast of Pinto Rock. It is about 200' tall and offers unique climbing on bomber cobbles!

Getting There

1/2 hour approach from the pullout. Follow the trail North along the East face of Pinto. (From the East face, Rodeo Wall can easily be seen to the NE.) Continue to traverse a few hundred feet until arriving at a steep, lush gully that cuts up Left and leads to a large gap. Go through the gap to the West side of the formations. Take a right (North) under jaw dropping overhangs, and keep walking up until the wall terminates to gain the ridge. Follow a faint game trail NE under the ridge line and meander down to the wall.
