Description 

Probably the most crowded area at the Lower Wall on nice summer days, the Main Wall also has the highest route density and many awesome high-quality routes.

Getting There 

Approach as for the Great Northern Slab, but follow the trail right along the base of the cliff.

Featured Route For Main Wall, left side
Above the second pitch ramp on "batskins", great balance climbing along the ramp leads to corner work with stemming off knobs. Excellent.

Batskins 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  WA : Index : ... : Main Wall, left side
The truncated first pitch climbs an arch with natural gear (some tricky placements) to a ledge with an anchor (.11a). The full first pitch continues via technical stemming on knobs in a shallow groove, then moves left to an anchor (5 bolts; .12b). The second pitch follows a bolted ramp past knobs to a tough balance move (.11d). 4 or 5 bolts; thin gear is needed to protect the balance move (nuts, 00-0 TCU's)....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
