Description

Excavated during an ambitious winter in 2019 this cliff was wildly overgrown. The wall consists of a unique collection of diagonal cracks, ramps, crystal pockets and quartz dykes which provide remarkable sculpted terrain. Use a 70 meter rope. Protection can wander a few runners may be useful. Dryness or wetness is similar to the Mid Walls. Expect semi-moderate climbs on new terrain in the shade. The wall tops out just below Dana's Arch. I am still developing some lines but would love to share what is finally open.

Consider as an option for semi moderate climbing at the Upper walls.;

Getting There

This entire cliff is known as "Shady Lane" and was split East and West. The area seems to have been largely neglected by climbers in part because of marginal information and partly over confusion on what sector is what. We cleaned and retro-bolted the west end in October 2018. Both sectors are separated by a five minute walk along the cliff base.

Approach as for the Upper Town Wall. You will see a large white clean cliff through the trees just after the spur heading to the top of the upper wall and after passing "One Bobcat Rock" Most climbers will recognize the roofs and blocky gully which marks the eastern edge of the cliff band touching the UTW trail just before the last steep section leading to Davis Holland. You will see a rough trail left through a large patch of ferns approaching a very inspiring roof system. This is the Lighthouse.
