Knob Wall gets its name from the preponderance of large brown knobs protruding from the granite. There are two easy climbs on the right side that follow these lines of knobs, perfect for the beginning climber but also fun solos for anyone wanting a warm-up before tackling the wall’s more challenging lines. These harder climbs are on steeper terrain and tiny crimps but mostly finish on easy knobs. There is a bolted anchor for the two easy lines and another that serves the four harder lines. Descent is via an easy walk-off to the northeast.

Getting There 

Same as that for Main Wall Left. From there, continue to the southwest, picking up a faint trail that heads west over the ridge, down along the north side of Knob Wall.

Pimple Patrol 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  CA : Inland Empire : ... : Knob Wall
Start below a large brown knob in the center of the face, about 5’ right of the end of the horizontal crack. Small edges gain the first knob. Continue up past the knobs from the lower, steeper section and run it out from the second bolt on low angle slab. Finish at the anchor below the cap, shared with Knobulator. Good beginner’s lead. Descend via easy walk-off to the northeast, away from the climbs, or down-climb Knobulator....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
