Description Suggest change

The Upper Tan Corridor was one of the first areas developed at Staunton, with the first routes being 80 Grit and Welcome to Staunton. This wall features many of the best 10s and 11s at Staunton and is not to be missed. The majority of the routes here are fully bolted, but there are a handful of routes that require gear.

Here is a topo of the main wall:

The Main Tan Corridor.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow directions to the Meadow Dome. From the Meadow Dome, head west along the climber access trail. After a couple minutes of hiking, take the first spur off to the north (signed Tan Corridor/Dungeon/Marmot Tower), which leads to The Dungeon and Tan Corridor. Follow the right hand fork and make your way up a series of stone stairs. You will know you are in the Upper Tan Corridor when you see a lone permadraw hanging under a large roof. Do not try to approach via the gully above the Permission Wall.
