Description

The Genesis Wall offers some of the hardest full-length sport lines at Marne. Fantastic 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?

Beyond that, there is a cave at the end of the crag, behind the treatment plant.  The cave is often wet, but in the winter it has been know to dry up.  Climb carefully in the cave, many of the holds are fragile.  And watch out for old nails on the wooden landing platform.

Getting There

This is the area closest to the 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 the Warm-Up Wall, Katz Wall, and Poison Ivy Wall, then around the corner and up a small hill to the Genesis Wall.
