Walt's Wall

5.10b, Sport, 50 ft (15 m),  Avg: 3.6 from 17 votes
FA: Walt Corvington, 1990
Oregon > Willamette Valley > Flagstone > Walts Wall

Description

This is a fun route with a wide variety of holds. Climb High Noon or Morning Desire to a small ledge with two sets of belay bolts (optional belay, the climb can be done in one pitch if desired). From this ledge, Walt's Wall goes straight up through a section of undercling flakes, then moves up and right on pockets and edges. It finishes at a two-bolt anchor just over a small bulge.

Location

Climb High Noon or Morning Desire to reach a ledge halfway up the wall. Walt's Wall starts from here (see beta photo on the Walt's Wall area page).

Rappel once (one 60m rope just barely reaches the ground), or walk off to the right.

Protection

Bolts, two-bolt anchor at the top.

[Hide Comment] Very nice pitch linked with High Noon using some long slings down low and backcleaning bolt 1 after clipping bolt 2. Lower off with 70m. Sep 27, 2015
[Hide Comment] Climbed this area last Spring and it has a lot to offer. The Morning Desire to Walt's Wall is one of the best climbs in Wilamette Valley. Linking the two pitches with a 70 is perfect and you can do one, stretched rappel to the bottom. Oct 5, 2015

[Hide Comment] diverse set of moves required including underclings and side pulls. big holds and steep wall. 60 meter rope just long enough to rappel from top anchors. Aug 23, 2018
