A cool problem in the middle of the Lower Wall

Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock MORE INFO >>>


Far down the canyon from the Warm-Up Wall and The Corridor is a very nice-looking wall with just a few problems. All are fairly difficult and tend to be sandy from lack of traffic. The Lower Wall proper is on the right side of the canyon and begins with a beautifully featured blunt prow. Another wall across the canyon has a couple ok problems that often have water in the landing.

Getting There 

Walk left from the Trailer Park, past the Warm-Up Wall and The Corridor. Pass many tall walls, then continue through a flat section of the canyon. A bit past this is the Lower Wall, on the right. About a 10 minute walk from the Trailer Park.

this wall was cleaned and climbed by J. Jackson, M. Hoch, and M. Engbring cerca 1999. the right arete/prow is "toe-to-toe" and is one of the best problems in the canyon! ascending the center of the wall is a difficult unnamed matt engbring problem and on the leftish side is an intense Matt Hoch F.A. "wonder palm" which ascends some very slopey holds and down palm maneuvers. the wall on the opposite side of the canyon hosts the "V10 traverse" which is not V10.
