The Whisper Wall Rock Climbing
Shuggie enjoying some downtime at the Whisper Wall
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.
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.

Crimp your way through the "stone ripple" section with big feet, and then get ready to tech your w...[more] Browse More Classics in Arizona
