Description

Chuck Norris Wall is characterized by steep, crystalline granite with plenty of single pitch pebble pinching. Most of the routes are in the 5.10-5.12 range, though there are a handful of moderates. The sport routes are bolted generously, so it's a good place to try a new grade and make it to work the next morning. Some of the trad lines are flared; offsets are useful.

This is east-facing. The crag gets morning sun and afternoon shade. The area is close to others so swinging around to find the best shade works out well.

Getting There

A 45 minute/1.6 mile approach and afternoon storms keep the crowds away.

Start at the popular Devil's Head Fire Lookout trailhead. Hike on the trail for about 10 minutes, crossing a creek and starting up the first switchback until seeing a picnic table on right. The main trail cuts south.

Turn left on a decent social trail with some blowdown. Follow this for about 20 minutes with a bit of up and down until reaching a fourway social trail junction at a small saddle after a log bridge.

Right goes to Morning Glory Wall. A hard left goes between mini-towers and swings south and up a gully to the Chuck Norris Wall. There are raspberries here.
