Description 

Sunny! This South-facing wall gets sun early and keeps it until around 5pm. This is the far west and steepest section of Unaweep Wall. It has great rock quality that is of the larger grain granite. There are more loose blocks rather than exfoliated blocks. The hike in is the major deterrent.


Getting There 

Either go straight up from the highway up some tought scree terrain or follow drainages and hit Unaweep Wall proper and traverse west along the cliff line.

We originally planned to do a new route that went up the longest section of the wall where Ancient Wisdom lies, but after seeing the broken and ledgy profile of the face we opted for the steeper west side that would offer more sustained climbing at the cost of a few hundred feet.

I support wild places and the spirit of adventure. We are losing wilderness at a frightening pace.
