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 a large, 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. Many routes are climbable, even in the rain, due to the large roofs.

Per Paul Emrick: Bruce Eriksen & I put up all of the routes on the Umbrella Wall except for one (that was rap bolted from our anchors... grumble, grumble).

Getting There 

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