Description

The Genesis Wall offers some of the hardest full-length sport lines at Marne. Great climbing. Test your pocket pulling and crimp power on the face that is surprisingly steep! The bottom 6-10 feet has a problem with seeping that can last through the spring, but above that the routes tend to stay fairly dry year round.
One of the best routes at the crag is Casual Business that follows the arrete between PI Wall and Genesis Wall. In the corner on the right side, a widening dihedral crack will put your trad skills to the test. It is a bit spicy!

Around the corner to the right are a few fun boulder problems, with the potential for more moderates with a good bit of cleaning, or what may well be some very high quality double digit material. Any takers? Strong men? Lady crushers?

Getting There

This is the area closest to treatment plant, but please enter from the main access trail along Marne Rd (don't come in behind the sewage treatment plant). As you enter, go right along the cliff line past Warmup Wall and Katz Wall and the Cave, and then around the corner and up a small hill to the Genesis Wall.
Just a bit further down are a handful of boulder problems. Go further still to discover what could be the most amazing bouldering cave ever, if only it weren't permanently soaked and mossy and with 1500 pounds of assorted detritus in it.
