DescriptionThe Villain Wall is the shorter southwest facing wall directly to the right of Trojan Wall, and further right of the Bat Cave. The routes on this wall are typically lower angle, shorter, and easier than those found on the Super Hero wall. The left side of the wall starts right of the "Trojan Wall", as the wall becomes shorter and less steep. There are two small caves that mark the transition between the two walls. On the right side the Villain wall ends at the corner. Right of this is the "Super Hero" wall.
The South facing aspect means that this wall gets sun from late morning until sunset. The early morning sun is blocked by the mountain to the east.
The rock on this wall is generally pretty solid, and littered with features and small huecos. This wall does have some of the sharp grey limestone and less of the orange limestone that some of the other walls have.
Getting ThereFrom either parking area (there are trails leading from each parking area that join part way up the hill, although the higher lot has a better trail) follow the trail thru the first rock band, for a short 3rd class section. From here follow the trail up the gully for a short ways until it exits out the left side of the gully. Follow this for several switchbacks up to the base of the Super Hero Wall. Turn left and follow the trail along the base of the cliff to the Villain Wall.
