This is a newly developed area at the Emeralds and currently (12/12) contains 10 bolted sport climbs. This area is approximately 75 Yards north of the Kudos Kliff which is documented in Mike Carville's 1991 Tahoe Guide. The area sees afternoon sun. (upper fast food wall goes into the sun at about 2pm and the lower wall a little earlier) On the Emeralds main page herein is a 5 page topo of the entire Emeralds Benches area. (including Fast Food Wall). Fast Food Wall (and all the Benches area) are not subject to flooding like the Gorge area.

Getting There 

From I-80, exit onto Hwy. 20 and drive four miles toward Nevada City. After 3.5 miles turn north onto Bowman Lake Rd. and drive for 1.3 miles. Just before the bridge that crosses the Yuba River There is a dirt access road (this road is now gated and locked so you will have to walk in). After walking 750 yards on this dirt road you will see a cairn on the right take this trail to access all the benches sections including Fast Food Wall (except Steel Monkey and Two Unknown Climbs). For a Topo of all these locations and GPS coordinates see the “Photo's of the Emeralds” on the main Emeralds page.
