The Valentine Wall, from the road.


The Valentine Wall is the tall brown and black wall on the north end of the formation across the road from campsite #3. The Valentine Wall is on the north side of the same formation that contains The White Face, which is on the south side.

Getting There 

When entering Sawtooth Canyon campground drive past the speed bumps and the campground host and turn right after passing the kiosk. Drive past the restroom and pass The White Face, and two campsites, on the right. Continue between the rock formations to a wide parking area and campsite #3, on the left. The Valentine Wall is the tall brown wall on the right (south).

Nice to have a few new routes at New Jack. These routes are still shedding some holds for now, but should clean up nicely in time. My Bloody Valentine was our group's favorite, though we thought 5.9 was a more accurate rating.

There is a unfinished route in the middle, between Victoria's Secret and Cupid's Fever. I think it goes at 5.10a or so. There's 3 bolts for the route, and bolt 1 is missing.

It can be a good mxied route, I climbed it yesterday. Some trad gear to follow up the crack that appears pretty quick. Few good hand jams and few toe jams and you are pretty much done.

It's probably safer to TR this for most folks.
