Description

Yellow Wall is a small sector but has loads more potential. There are three 5.11 long, technical routes and two harder, shorter tufa/features routes on the right side. The approach is relatively short compared to its neighboring sectors.

Rain: I suspect it's not a great place in the rain.
Shade: No shade. The south-facing aspect makes is a great wall for cold or cloudy days. It does get some breezes though.

Getting There

From the public parking in Leonidio, drive east out of town on the highway towards Astros for about two miles. You'll pass a wood-working shop on your right called "Strantzos". Park a few hundred feet past the wood-working shop in small pullouts on the right. Hike up a gravel/dirt driveway across the highway from the parking spots following red painted dots until you come to a house. Turn left just before the house and head straight up a gully along a metal fence. At the top of the fence, make a hard right on a good trail to hike along the fence.

Follow the parking and approach directions for Theos but as you hike along the fence towards the Theos Pillar, take a left turn up a trail marked for "Mad Wall." Yellow Wall will be the first major wall you encounter on the right as you ascend the trail towards "Mad Wall."
