Its nice to have moderate routes to warm up on. Lots of fun, easy to find and just around the corner from Yellow Pine. I will caution the crag is new and there are some small loose rocks.

I thoroughly enjoyed these climbs and wish to see more moderate routes like this at Mt. Charleston. The routes at Walla Walla Wash are well bolted and have a clean movement to them.

Great routes for moderate climbers. Very fun routes, great movement and really easy to find. You can also practice repelling from the top. Good spot all around

I think you have your grades mixed up. Based on the routes and lengths listed, these are basically grade II.

a fine warm-up crag that is blessedly easy to find and serves as a great landmark for finding yellow pine (and a great warmup for the routes there as well!).

great find.

At least one or two of these are retrobolted ground-up mixed routes. I think they will get a lot more traffic now that they have tons more rap-installed bolts on them, but there were mixed routes that were considered finished on this wall back when, and now there are sport routes. I talked with some of the guys that probably put these up, they did a lot of random routes around this canyon, never bothered to report them as they weren't that exciting. Wonder what the more recent bolters' process of trying to contact the original first ascentionists was like? My bet-no call, no mention, hope nobody notices. Check the varying age and style of the bolts on this wall. BTW looks like possible hardware store bolts on some of these newer placements. Would be interested to hear where the recent bolters picked up their gear...

Nice 4 route wall. I thought the gear looked pretty new on the left two routes. plenty of room for shade and sun. Nice open base to belay without obstacles.

First time out at Walla Walla Wash & got a first onsigh lead on Nighttime Shenanigans. Great place to get used to climbing outdoors.

Couple quick notes from an experienced out of towner.

The approach is longer than 15 minutes unless you're sprinting and not ever looking up/around at how awesome the area is.

Does this wall ever get any sun? We were there around 10AM today and the rock was ice cold (about 50F in the shade), and the shadow only got longer. Fingers were numb two bolts up! lol

Only did one route, was lots of fun/great movement, quality rock, and bolting was perfect.
