Fall of the Wall is located on the Berlin Wall, with occupies the amphitheater between the Krishna Buttress and Wall of Winter Warmth. Approach via the steep gully that climbs to the terrace at the base of the Wall if approaching from Boulder Falls, or rappel in from the top if approaching from Upper Dream Canyon parking area. Fall of the Wall starts circa 20 feet to the right of Iron Curtain. Ascend the black water streak up to the thin-holds crux between bolts 2 and 3 and follow bolts up and slightly left over the left-facing corner/rooflet onto the tricky headwall (11+) above.


7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.


Fun route, choss mid-way, could use some crowbar action. Mar 17, 2012

The 3rd and 4th bolt have been moved to better clipping positions (lower and slightly right). Additionally a 2 bolt extension has been added so the route now goes to the top of the wall. Sep 5, 2008
There is a fixed rope to aid in getting up the gully if coming from Boulder Falls, it looked solid, so we used it to rappel back down the gully. Great route! Sustained. Aug 1, 2003
We were originally gonna name this route "The Fall of the Berlin Wall", but that was approaching paragraph length so we shortened it to just "Fall of the Wall"

Given the current Boulder Falls trail closure, note that it is possible to approach the Berlin Wall from the Dream Canyon parking lot and rap in. If you do so, please respect the private property near the parking lot and stay well away from the cabin that's located there. Also, at the top of the Berlin Wall be aware that there is lots of loose rocks and knocking any of it off could nail someone below you.

Hope you enjoy this route and it neighbor, East Germany 13a. :-) Apr 30, 2003
