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.

Destined to be a classic, Clear Air Turbulence, starts out with an in your face V3, however if you make it past the initial boulder problem, the pleasure starts to begin in the obvious stem dihedral above.This 30' long dihedral might as well be straight outta J Tree, and features very thoughtful sequences past smeary knobs, and a few laser cut holds. This section is about as good as stemming gets for a mid .11 grade. Enjoy a good shake after the stem test, then launch into a sea of crimps, finge...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
