Description [Suggest Change]

Low Wire is a quiet crag beneath the busy lines of High Wire. It has great rock and a nice selection of grades. Low Wire is deeper in the canyon and receives less sun. It gets afternoon shade. Please be aware of loose rock in the area to use caution and careful footing to avoid and slipping/falls or other loose rock catastrophes.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Park on the east side of Tunnel 2 across from the New River Wall using the same parking as Highlander, High Wire, Right Wire, etc. Walk to the tunnel, cross the road, and climb up the scramble to the base of the High Wire crag. After passing the very large overhanging roof that covers half of the main sector of High Wire (on your right), scramble downhill to find a few bolted lines and a fixed line that will start at the base of Vagini (5.10c). The approach time is ~15 minutes.

Went down the fixed line 3/4/18, and it has a couple core shots in it, which are isolated by knots. On rappel, be prepared to pass those knots on steeper sections of the slab. Mar 5, 2018
