Description 

Old Folks' Wall is a small area, about 60 feet high, characterized by Sherman granite with a somewhat crunchy texture in places. The routes are mixed for the most part. A bench-like feature runs along the base, offering an athletic start to most of the routes. Tends to be sheltered from the wind and quite sunny most of the day. Rob Kelman suggests that no one under the age of fifty should climb here without seasoned adult supervision.

Getting There 

Central Area: Drive down to the lower parking lot, hike the Turtle Rock Trail. Walk a furlong past Holy Saturday to where a 15-foot-high pile of rocks is sitting on the right side of the trail. Turn right at this, and meander up the same trail as for Jurassic Park, but just as you reach the trail's high point, turn to your left. You shouldn't need to be wearing bifocals to see the Old Folks Wall. Take the easiest approach next to the blocky buttress, squeezing your way around the big, flat boulder at the base of the wall. Drop your pack, take a breather.
