DescriptionWalt's Wall is a great, multi-pitch, beginner's trad line. The route climbs the right-hand side of Walt's Wall in three pitches with belay/rap anchors at the top of each pitch.
P1. The most enjoyable pitch of the three. Start just left of the Coke Bottle dihedral and climb up an easy crack to a fairly large horizontal crack. Veer left and up and continue to the first set of anchors. On busy days with a lot of traffic on the wall, traverse another 10-15 feet and set a gear anchor to avoid the crowds coming down the Walt's Wall rappel.
P2. Climb a right angling ramp (very easy) past a couple old 1/4" buttonheads to the I-bolt belay at the top of the pitch.
P3. The final pitch continues up an easier, low angle slab with sparse protection to another I-bolt anchor.
Either walk off the top and veer right into a gully that will take you down to the road, or rappel from the top of the route (two 60m ropes will take you back to the ground, or you can use one rope and hit each of the intermediate stations on the way down).
