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.

Getting There 

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.

This is an o.k. crack and face route; a right-facing flake is a useful feature on the climb. The Bartlett guide calls it The Griswolds and the Vogel guide calls it Hotseat....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
