good times at the upper ambush wall!


Afternoon shade. This area has a lot of trees. Shady and cool.

Getting There 

Drive up the canyon 5.7 miles from the flashing sign. There is a pull out on the North Side of the road. There is an orange sign with "7.8" in black at the pull out. This sign is for "mile marker" 7.8 as it is only a little ways before mile marker 8. Walk up the hill into the trees and you can't miss the wall.

Fun wall. Well placed bolts. 30 second approach.

I would agree with an upper and lower designation. This wall is a lot of fun but still a little dirty. Some air cans would go a long way. I counted a total of 6 sport routes. 4 below, 2 above.

so far so good. the wall is cleaning up nicely, still holding a few loosey's but with a little care you won't be ripping off anything. if your a moderate sport climber this is your spot.

be careful here there are some loose rocks... climbed this area monday 6-21-10 climbed the unknown 5.8 didn't think much of it but while I was about to lead bong a long a guy who also climbing there pulled a bowling ball sized rock off. there are also many pebbles and small rocks that get kicked off so be aware and WEAR A HELMET !

Folks, not counting the 5.11d that is rarely cimbed, there are only 5 routes here, and two of them share an anchor, so if there are more than 2 cars parked at the pullout, you may want to look elsewhere, or be prepared to wait your turn. Or you can do like some ass did yesterday--even though there were already three cars below, he pulled up leading a group of SIX, threw their packs and stuff right on top of ours, and proceeded to hop on one of the two 5.8's without asking even though there was already a climber on the route next to it that shares anchors. Large groups and impatient tools should look elsewhere.

Found a ring at the base of the wall on July 4th. PM me a description if you think it's yours and I'll be happy to get it back to you.

Couple routes could use new chains esp the 5.9, if you're reading this swing by home Depot on your way there
