This overhanging west facing wall with numerous features is the home to Eagle Talons (5.12a), an excellent bolt protected route that ascends the middle of the formation (4 out of 5 stars).

Getting There 

As soon as you reach The Valley of Kings (see description) look east and you will see The Corrugated Wall; a dark brown formation with many gouged out sections. Walk east from the Helmet across the valley floor for about 1/2 mile to reach this wall. Some boulder hopping is necessary.

Alternatively, this formation can be accessed by hiking to the top of the ridge above The Bulkhead and then continuing west past The Morrissey Crag through a narrow passageway to The Valley of Kings.

Either approach will take between 75 - 90 minutes.

Begin at the base of the west facing overhanging Corrugated Wall and climb past eight bolts on excellent rock to sport anchors. Reachy and powerful moves are encountered between the 6th and 8th bolts. This is yet another classic climb in The Valley Of Kings (4 out of 5 stars)!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
