Description 

Just a few steps away from the parking lot, the Lower Wall is where most people will be on a nice day in the summer. There are easier routes on the Great Northern Slab as well as more difficult routes and aid routes on the Main Wall and The Country. The Lower Wall is generally very nice when it is sunny. The trees provide shade for the lower portions of routes and always for the belayer.

Getting There 

Once you cross the train tracks, go a little left and find the trail that heads up towards the wall. The part of the trail that turns right stays along the base of the Lower Wall.

This brilliant route leaves Numbah Ten after the 6th bolt and heads right through a roof and up onto a technical arete that is just under vertical. Some ascents have likely climbed to the right after the roof to take advantage of a full rest on Iron Horse before moving back left to establish on the arete; this reduces the grade to about .13a as it allows one to start the Powerhorse (Iron Horse into Amandla) sequence fully rested (and chalked). If climbed directly without the jaunt righ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington

Finest crag in the land.

Hello, we were bouldering at the Lower Town Wall today, and I accidentally left my turquoise blue Five Ten Women's Anasazi LV shoes there. If you happen to spot them, would you mind leaving a post so we can try to get in touch (and thank you in advance for being a good samaritan and looking here in the first place!) :-) PS the conditions were great today. Several people on the wall, but not too crowded.
