Description [Suggest Change]
The West Walls consist of several areas that make up the western one-third of Cooks Wall climbing. These smaller individual walls are scattered down the hillside, one after the other across a broken up cliff line, so it is fairly easy to identify which is which. The West Walls offer the tamest and more popular climbing experience at Cooks. The setting is very pleasant and a majority of the routes have little to no gear but a rack is still useful as there are many good lines that need supplemental pieces.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Hike the Cooks Wall trail, past House Rock and up to the beginning of the ridge line. Hike the ridge for 5-6 minutes until you start walking through the woods away from the cliff line. Turn left off the trail onto a faint trail at the first boulder on your left. If you get to the first grassy meadow, you have gone 30-40' too far. Follow a faint trail down hill while keeping the rocky ridge paralleling your right side. Near the base of the hill, the trail will continue right until you arrive at the first wall, which is the Breakfast Wall.
