Description

The Lower Wall is predominantly steep climbing with an abundance of routes requiring a little to a lot of gear. Many of the routes have lower angle sections but they all tilt back at some point in the climb. In the early 90's the Orthel brothers and Glenn Barnes established the first two routes here with Snail Trail Barbie and Whisk Briskly Til Stiff. This was followed by Nathan Brown establishing Well Done and Mystery Meat while I put up Supercharger. Over the years, the Lower Wall developed into a complete area with a good assortment of routes. But the already long hike into Cooks makes it difficult to walk past perfectly good climbing in order to venture even further downhill to the Lower Wall before breaking out the rope. The West Walls offer a more casual group setting and typically tamer climbing, therefore popularity for the Lower Wall has been minimal.

Getting There

Use the same approach as if you're going to the West Walls. Fifty feet before the Breakfast Wall, look for a wide but not too beaten down trail, heading downhill to the left. Part way down you will pass a large boulder on your right and continue slightly left and then straight downhill to the base. Over Easy will be to your right (west) and Little Ass Kicker to your left. Supercharger, Sunshine and Pimping are all to the left past Little Ass Kicker and in that order.

Does anyone know the name of the two climbs on the far right on the lower wall? We did the far right mixed line, probably 5.7. The left line looks 5.8/9. I don't know if the qualify as part of the Pimpin' Ain't Easy section or what. See picture attached.
