Description [Suggest Change]
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 [Suggest Change]
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.
