Description

The Big Wall is the tallest, most impressive face at the Eyeball. It is about 115 m tall at its highest point and close to 400 m long. There are several large, prominent arches on the face with lines of weakness/cracks/corners running beneath them and more climbing above. There is an eye-catching prow and pillar at the left end of the cliff and a less dramatic pillar on the right end.

Getting There

To get to the Big Wall, continue walking down the logging road for approximately another 500 m from the first big clearing from where you saw the First Wall. The cliff will mostly disappear from view as the trees crowd the road, but after 500 m you will come to another clearing/open spot in the road from where you will see the unmistakable Big Wall. Another 130 m past this viewpoint you will hit the Beer Can Trail, the first access path that leads to Big Wall. Look for a piece of orange flagging tape and/or a semi-crushed beer can (Kokanee) stuck on a tree branch stump to your left (N46° 30.309' W83° 07.208'). A flagged approach trail heads into the Big Wall on your right opposite the beer can marker. A quick 100 m walk will bring you to the start of a large talus field, more or less in the middle of the Big Wall. It is easier to walk the base of the cliff along the forest edge rather than talus-hopping, although no trail has yet been flagged across the base. Another 60 m past the Beer Can Trail, a second trail, the Crowbar Trail (hacked out primarily by a crowbar) cuts through the trees to the Big Wall. It is marked with orange flagging tape (N46° 30.269' W83° 07.216').
