Description

Krishna West is the expansive wall to the west (left) of the Krishna Spire. There are routes down by the river (Black Pool, etc.) below the spire that are recorded to be on The Krishna. The Krishna West is the massive wall (300' wide) that had seen some bolted action as well some old dads placing a few pitons B.I.T.D. Dan Levison's 20 meter Full Circle is located left of center on this mostly crack riddled wall. There are also 2 more bolted routes (Shiva The Destroyer and Cave Traverse) that are located on the upper right side of the Krishna West, around the corner and left of Prajna (the orange arete on Krishna Spire). We have added 11 new lines on the far left side of the Krishna West. The wall is 40+ meters tall, but the upper stretches are ledgy, loose and low angle. There are 6 sets of anchor chains that service 11 new lines at a height of 30-35 meters.

Getting There

Park at Upper Dream Canyon parking lot, and trend east (left) off the main ridge and down into the small creek drainage below. Hug the left wall to avoid many downed trees, and when you finally see the river below, traverse left up a small notch to gain the steep gully leading down to base of the Krishna West. It is a 15 minute approach.
