About 90' tall (whoddathunk it?), 90 foot wall is a well-featured granite cliff that is very popular and easily top-roped... thus making it often crowded!
Walk out of the Eagle Creek Canyon parking lot away from Emerald Bay and follow the waterfall trail (the big trail). After a few hundered feet, the path splits, go right and follow the loop trail. A little while later, the Vista trail trail heads up and off to the right. Take it. Right before the bench that you may sit on to enjoy the beautiful vista, the trail turns sharply right. Don't turn right. Leave the trail and keep going straight over the large slabby rock, and about 150 feet later, 90' wall will appear on your right.

Ice Nine starts on the right portion of Ninety Foot Wall about 20 feet left of the big cedar. It begins at the same spot as Lightning Bolt in a right-facing dihedral under a very obvious roof about 30' feet up. Ice Nine skirts to the right of the roof by following a diagnol crack from the dihedral towards the flake on the right side of the roof. This is the toughest part. Past the roof, jog up and left to avoid the more-difficult (~10d) line, then cut back right towards the top anchors to fi...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
