Description Suggest change

Walls are meant to be climbed. So say the folks at Northface. Does this include prison walls? With this question in mind we named most of the 24 routes on this wall after famous prisons. The last five, at the right end, are named after well known songs about prison life. The easiest route is the first pitch of Devils Island 5.6, at the far left end while the harder routes , with one exception, occur at the North end (climbers right).

Getting There Suggest change

Continue along the wall to the North until you see the classic route Norminator on the Van Gogh wall.  At that point the trail drops down and around on it's way to Prison Wall.
