Description

Knob Wall is a great route to take neophyte climbers. Like the name says, it's easy climbing on plentiful jugs, and it's a nice long route with a great view of the valley below. Knob Wall is also a good choice for new trad leaders, who can sew it up with gear and learn how to sling horns as well.

Starting just left of a large boulder, climb the face to a small ledge (little to no pro in the first 15'). Follow the jugs and horns up to anchors at the top.

Location

Starts just around the corner from White Gold, not far down the trail from Misty.

Protection

Small to medium gear, plus slings for the horns. Bolted anchors (or shuts) at the top.

Yep, I led this with slings only. No problem! Super fun run up. My friend did this as his first trad lead on his second trip outdoors. Jul 27, 2017
I placed about 3 cams all less than #1, nice horns to sling all the way up after the first 30 ft. I taught my friend trad on this route, and he scored his first line. At the top there is a third bolt which is nice. Knob wall has technically a route to the right and to the left (follows a crack line). Knob wall left has two set of anchors at the top perfect for anyone looking to run through their SPI skills. Knob left has an anchor above the first one just by a few feet (not visible from the ground- if you go to this anchor it is an easier climb but has terrible rope drag). You can tie in and set up assisted rappels here easily with the extra anchor point to bring "clients" to. Great place for new trad climbers, just know how to sling horns or you'll find minimal pro along the way! Mar 24, 2017

First real trad lead. Forgot to bring slings for the horns so I ran it out a bit. But a fun lead. Don't forget slings Nov 1, 2016

Fun and chill route. We did it with nuts, tri-cams, and slings, with no shoes or chalk for added adventure. Jan 7, 2012
