Description 

The Whisper Wall is a complex of enticing stone, shapeshifting angles, and majestic colors. A near constant whisper of wind whipping through the canyon, on all but the calmest days, helps remind you that this is a full mountain venue.

This area is actually just up hill and east of the Main Wall, and might take a five minute walk/scramble to access the base of the wall. There is a very rudimentary trail.

Routes range from 85' to 100', though do to the nature of the crag, having a 70 meter rope is a real advantage.

Getting There 

From the Main Wall, above Solitaire hike up the round about trail, to a large boulder. Follow faint, loose, choked switchbacks up a gulley moving to words the canyon, but up hill. Some scrambling through a notch, and over a giant log will lead you to the base of the wall.

A solid, long, aesthetic edging route is a special occurrence, and especially when the movement is good. The Wild Whisper is just such a line. This beautiful pitch is riddled with naturally sculpted finger buckets, substantial crimps, and the occasional rest.Start on the same holds as Up Drafting, but quickly turn the corner to the right on the juggy diagonal rail, and the first bolt to your right. Crimp your way through the "stone ripple" section with big feet, and then get ready to tech your w...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
