The Winter Wall is a small but steep to overhanging 80ft of seemingly blank wall. There are few routes on this formation as it has few usable features on it's smooth walls. However, a few routes do exist. Two on it's less vertical and much shorter west side and one aid route up the center of the main wall.

This wall is mostly in the shade all day. Its steep face which has the aid route makes for a somewhat dry location to get vertical in less than dry conditions.
