Description

The Fallout Zone lies directly above the Loading Zone but couldn't feel much different. The Loading Zone is (relatively) tall, less than vertical, and hosts almost exclusively gear routes; the Fallout Zone is short, vertical to overhanging, and hosts mostly bolted routes. Both are good in their own way. In general, the Fallout Zone is well-featured, steep, and solid basalt on a strikingly-colored, black-and-white streaked wall.

Similar to the Loading Zone, you can easily access the top of the Fallout Zone if you want to set up a toprope. Each route has its own anchors, some of which you can reach without a rope, and some of which you'll have to get creative to get to. All hardware at the Fallout Zone is stainless steel as of 07/17.

This crag is very recently developed. Please be aware that some dirt, plant life, and small loose rocks may exist.

Getting There

Follow the directions on the main Warner Valley page to get to the Loading Zone. From the base of the Loading Zone, take the obvious trail that skirts the right side of the cliff and shortly accesses the cliff top. As soon as the trail begins to flatten out, look for a trail that splits off right. Follow this for ~5 minutes to the base of the Fallout Zone.
