Tranquil pool near the London Wall, Williamson Roc...

Williamson Rock is currently closed to climbing. MORE INFO >>>


Located a short distance downstream from the popular Mushroom Boulder and just right of the equally popular Stream Wall, the London Wall is one of the better walls at Williamson Rock and consequently sees a great deal of traffic. A seasonal stream runs along the base, and in wet years it can flow until early summer, which makes climbing here a little more interesting.

Climbs are long, and often sustained, with interesting moves, so good technique is often helpful. During the season it's not uncommon to see a variety of people - from locals running another lap for the pump to somebody redpointing their first 5.11 - queued up for the quality routes which range from 5.10 to 5.12.

Classics here include Dream Speed (5.11a), The Labyrinth (5.11c), Furry Pump (5.11d), The Pursuit (5.12b) and World on Fire (5.12c).

Getting There 

From the Mushroom Boulder hike downstream a short distance to reach a trail on the left that goes up a small hill before descending back into the streambed near the right end of the London Wall.

The Labyrinth 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  California : Los Angeles Basin : ... : London Wall
Originally bolted in 1990 an extension with a second seperate set of anchors was added in 2002. Long, sustained and powerful this route requires good core strength and the ability to pull down hard with good technique. Starting on a short slabby ramp to steep overhanging terrain on good flakes, crimpers and jugs to a short rest at the first set of anchors. Continue on for three more bolts on scary flakes to the second anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
