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.
