DescriptionWinter Wall is comprised of the largest cliffs on Short Mountain's SW flank and is located on the SW tip of the mountain. The walls are slightly off vertical to vertical in nature and are mostly thin technical face climbs. There are some decent trad leads on these walls, mostly moderates, following features that looks like they might dislodge if pulled too hard or fell on your gear... typical of trap rock.
This area like other less frequented Traprock Cliffs has some very dangerous loose rock on common routes. I personal have witnessed a massive block dislodge on a climber while he was attached to it.
Getting TherePark at the Timberlin Park parking area and head past the gate down the road to the dead end. Head past the picknick area on your right and follow the White and Blue trail over bridge and then left down a river for a few hundred feet. At the first intersection follow the blue and white trail back right. Continue along the trail, eventually up a stream, and then SW along the ridge. You will see the cliffs getting bigger and bigger below you on the left. Follow the obvious trail down left along the base of the cliff main.
