Description

The Sunday Wall is located south of the Ramp Routes, just north of Asbury Park. Routes are moderately long for the School Room, between 50 and 80 feet tall, and are equipped with a few communal anchors. This area is home to about 10 moderate trad routes (5.4 - 5.10) and makes a decent destination for trad climbing in Ogden that doesn't involve dodging cars, steep approaches, and loose rock in Ogden Canyon.

Like the rest of the School Room, the rock is quartzite. Consequently, there are few lines here that follow a single continuous feature, but features do tend to link into logical lines. Rock quality is generally pretty good, with the majority of loose rock cleaned off during development. The wall gets morning shade and afternoon sun (full sun around 1pm) and catches occasional breeze. Most every route can be led on a single set of cams (including some small/micro pieces) up to #3 camalot and a set of nuts.

Given the history of climbing in Ogden, it is likely that at least some of these lines have been climbed before ("Cold Sunday in Hell" has a very old, cool stamped piton still in it). As a result, I am not listing first ascentionists as they are unknown (if anyone knows who they are definitively, please let me know and I'll update). Routes have been named for the sake of expediency but I'll happily update them if anyone has beta.

A big thanks goes out to Susan DeBruin, Billyjack Cundiff, Alex Marsden, Neil Johnson, and Katie Johnson for their contributions of time, hardware, and hard work in climbing, cleaning, gardening, and developing these lines.

Getting There

To access the 22nd Street trailhead, take Harrison Boulevard in Ogden to 22nd Street and follow it east toward the mountains. 22nd Street will terminate in a parking area at the trailhead.

From the trailhead, follow the obvious trail by the kiosk through the maze of mountain bike trails by continually taking the fork either toward the School Room or signed with "School Room Climbing Access." Continue up a trail signed for the "Ramp Routes." Steady uphill hiking on the ramp will take you past the 4 bolted Ramp Routes to the apex of the ramp. At the top of the ramp you'll encounter a small section of fixed cable to assist in accessing Asbury Park. The Sunday Wall is located to climber's left of this cable, just before Asbury Park.

The approach takes anywhere from 15 to 35 minutes depending on hiking speed and predisposition to go uphill quickly. It's approximately .75 miles and 750 feet.
