Description

The Main Wall is a stunning row of volcanic Dacite with slabs, steep pillars, laser cut dihedrals, sweeping arêtes, and wild headwalls. A mix of trad and sport routes are spread out across the colorfully streaked and often vibrant wall. Large Ponderosa pines, Aspen, and Scrub Oak line the base and provide a perfect backdrop for a days climbing. During the fall when the leaves change color this place quickly becomes one of the most beautiful walls in Flagstaff.

There are 60 routes with grades that run from 5.7 to 5.14- and everything in between. I’ve split this wall into three sections; The North End, Middle Area, and the South End. Everything climber’s right of where the trail meets the crag is the North End. Routes immediately left of the climber’s trail is the Middle Area. Walk south along the Middle Area to find the South End.

Getting There

Follow the climber’s trail straight to the wall.
