Description

The Banshee Wall is the obvious 650 foot wall above the Lower Slabs. It is an intimidating, sheer face with good rock and some less good rock.

Getting There

Follow the Porvenir trail from the Hermit's Peak parking area until you see the obvious wall on your right. The Lower Slabs approach gives additional details. Getting to the base of the Banshee Wall from the Slabs is a bit of a challenge. We came in from the far left on a series of ledges and did quite a lot of marginal 5th class scrambling. A much better approach would be to climb one of the Lower Slab routes and then work upwards towards the face on ledges. There is a final low 5th class chimney/face to get to the large tree on the ledge at the center of the face. Shoot for that.

"Banshee Wall" because we needed to call it something and because we did a bit of wailing on the way up. If anyone knows of a historical name for this feature, please weigh in & we'll correct the post. May 10, 2018

I've always referred to it as the Tombstone but thats just a discriptor I personally used, I'm not suggesting a name change. Good job on the new route. It's really cool to see some development happening. There is so much adventure climbing potential to be had on that mountain. May 10, 2018
