Description Suggest change

A real gem for the grade, Wailing Wall may bring back memories of the Gunks if you've ever led High E. The amazing holds and great protection on the steep face are matched only by the exposure.

Starting at the left end of the Amphitheatre, either begin by climbing a chimney right of the arete, or (more exciting) climb the nice arete itself. Continue up level with the base of a roof, then move left onto the exposed face and straight up through a notch to the trees.

Location Suggest change

Starts just right of the arete at the left end of the Amphitheatre. To rappel, scramble up and over from the topout ledge to a gully; move carefully down the gully to rap from fixed gear.

Protection Suggest change

Mostly medium gear; tricams are very useful. Build a gear anchor and/or sling trees.
