Wally World Rock Climbing
Wally World may not quite be a destination area but is is sunny and warm most all the time as it faces SE. Wally George (5.9)is a slightly gritty dihedral to hand crack that is worth doing. The route Devil Inside
(5.10c) is good but the pro is...well...BAD. If either old 1/4" bolt fails death would be a possibility. It is incorrectly shown in Al's book. He shows it traversing off on the ledge near the top. It actually goes up and right on the patina plates. This would be a very fun route with twice the bolts and I have been thinking about retro-bolting it.
Drive south from Cap Rock towards Keys View for 1.4 miles to a turnout on the left. There is an exibit here. This is the largest and highest of the formations to the east, a bit less than 1/4 mile.

Climb steep moves past a horizontal crack to knobs and mantle a small ledge. Continue straight up to the right end of the ledge that crosses the face. Lean out right and latch the patina plate (shaped vaguely like the state of Calif.). Climb to the top of this and reach the top. Al's book shows it incorrectly traversing off on the ledge which crosses the face. With 2 more bolts it would actually be fun, too scary otherwise....[more] Browse More Classics in California
