Description 

Umbrella Wall gets morning sun. It is chilly and in the shade for the rest of the day. There are several massive, unmistakable roofs. There is an orange/yellow wall with massive, triangular roof and a 20-30 foot wide black streak down the middle. There are 3 black streaks on the right side. It has good sport climbing on Telluride conglomerate in a great alpine setting. It is probably not as high quality as the Streaked Wall area but has a few gems, especially "High Lonesome". There are a number of good hard sport climbs here.

Getting There 

Traverse over (west) from the base of the main wall.
