Description [Edit]

The Red Wall is a single pitch formation located east of Staunton Rocks and overlooks both the Black Mountain Creek and the Pooka. The currently developed climbing faces northwest and stays in the shade until about 2 or 3pm, which makes for another option to escape the summer sun. The climbing is generally steep, on large featured holds, and consists of mostly sport routes. The top of the Red Wall, which provides a great overlook and fun exploring, is easily accessed on the north end.

Caution: climbers should be aware that the Red Wall is relatively new and has areas of fractured rock. Climbing parties should take all reasonable precautions including helmets, protected belay stances, not hanging out under climbers on route, and keeping kids on a leash, etc.

Getting There [Edit]

Hike the Staunton Ranch trail for about 2-1/2 miles to the signed Red Wall trail on the right (if you cross Black Mountain Creek or get to the Old Mill trail, you’ve gone about a quarter mile too far). Follow the signed Red Wall trail uphill as it curves to the east and north of the formation. From the saddle junction at the north end of the formation, take a right to access the base or take a left to hike up to the top.
