Description

The Religious Wall is approximately 100 yards upstream (North) from the Arsenal and packs in more quality climbing than expected from its small stature. This gently overhanging wall is a great option for short power-endurance without the pucker factor (generously bolted). Similar in aspect to the Arsenal, the Religious Wall bakes in the sun until 2:30 in the summertime. While the lower few bolts are in slightly dirty/crumbly terrain, the rock quality improves quickly. This sector sat in obscurity for over two decades, as the first route established in 1993 by Steve Damboise (El Cruz) remained unfinished until 2015.

Current routes right to left:
1. El Cruz, 5.12b. FA: Steve Damboise.
2. Foxhole Conversion, 5.13b. FA: Steve Damboise.
3. My Own Hell, 5.13d. FA: Steve Damboise.

Getting There

Drive past The Arsenal, and park in the small pullout just before the bridge over the creek. Slog up the grueling 15 foot approach.
