Description 

Hidden in a little slot in the eastern first pullout, Jessica's Wall has some very nice, albeit short, routes on beautiful black varnish. Pairs well with the other three walls in the area, as it faces ESE and gets morning sun.

Getting There 

Approach to Civilization Crag. From here, walk around the south side of the wall, passing the new routes, and continue around aiming for a large, blunt topped formation. Make a single step onto a boulder and across to this formation, passing a 30 foot squeeze chimney underfoot at its base (This is The Crevasse 5.10- R). Take the obvious slot up under the formation, and when you emerge on the other side you'll find yourself below a massive chimney a couple minutes above you (This is The Chasm). Continue over one more gully, and below sits Jessica's Wall. 15-20 minutes.

Nice crag! Routes are short but very good on good rock! Complex approach (but maybe we did not know the best way). This and Dante's are GREAT! We missed The Chasm, but we did find and climb at the other wall (white/sandy) between Jessica's and Dante's. Three routes there that were a bit chossy (unlike the amazing rock at Jessica's and Dante's) but still quite fun. The steeper (right) route on that wall will be really good after a lot of traffic.

Replaced the original beta/topo photo I uploaded with an updated high resolution version (the max MP currently allows)in hopes of greater clarity on the mobile app/ tablets...Cheers.

Coming from Red Springs, follow the wash past B-Team Boulder and Tiger Lily about 30 yards until you get to an easy scramble that starts up left but quickly turns right. Past some bushes leads you to a "scenic" slot chimney which takes you right up the base of the wall. (see approach photo)
