  • Description 

    As with the whole Kila Crags, it is a tall flat wall carved by a glacier many years ago. A lot has been blown out so there are some patches of splintered rock along a pretty flat face.
    Last to get sun in the early morning, last to lose it in the evening.
    Easy, with 3 routes (2 sport) under 5.8.
    The wall slopes forward more than the rest of the walls in Kila, making it the easiest and best for true beginners. I've taken several non-climbers here for their first time ever climbing, everyone sent it!
    Top anchors easily accessed from up top or on lead. Use the back up anchors when setting a top rope!
    As with all Kila walls, the highway makes a lot of noise, sometimes it's hard to hear your partner!
    Can go the LONG way around to set toprope or use the trail to the left, through the bushes and stay left to a small scramble to the top. Not the easiest but a lot shorter than going all the way down and around along the road to the main trail up.

    Getting There 

    This wall is to the left (west) from the Upper Wall. From the road (an old railroad grade) just passed Psychology Wall about 30 yards, follow a worn trail up hill about 20 yards, stay left to the base of Guardian Wall.
