The furthest left (west) area on the wall. This area is also the newest development and some routes are harder to get to than others. Most of this area is primarily face climbing with some cracks here and there. Some of the climbs here are really cool and unlike the rest of the wall. This is the only sport-like climbing section in Danland

The wall faces West so it's colder in the winter mornings.

Getting There 

When approaching Danland, you'll first arrive at The Silly Pinnacle from there take the trail to the left and follow it to Bear Ledge, from there, there's a white fixed line that heads up a steep ravine on the right. Climb this and follow the trail behind the rock. after a while you'll get to the first area of Valhalla. From the silly pinnacle it takes at most 10 minutes to get there.

Thor is the Crack to the left of Astrid. Jam your way up the corner until you get into a closing book that is cut off by a hummock. Clip the bolt to the right and step down until you can step out onto the face. Traverse right and climb through easy face climbing (5.6). continue past the next couple bolts until you get to the Anchor. This anchor is the same one for Astrid and Loki below it....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
