Gorgeous Chimney and a fantastic escape from the sun.

It has a hand crack in the back left. Climb the well protected crack for the 85' first pitch or stem the chimney. Two tricky moves near the top.

70' second pitch is nearly all off width.

I LOVED this literally cool climb. Still in my top three.

Name stone identifier at base.


As mentioned in Sharp End's 'Indian Creek Guide', there are four new trails for Technicolor Wall. Please use them!

Don't be put off by the approach. It's a fun jaunt in and worth it!

Second pitch is harder than 5.10a

I only did the first pitch, but it was awesome! Shady, cool and a nice change of pace from crack jamming. You have to place smaller gear in the right crack to avoid using large pieces (bigger than #5) in the left crack. The pieces in the right crack have to be set blind so I set quite a few, I used some DMM alloy offsets 8-10 range, and C4's in the .3 to .5 range. I used extended draws on every piece and the rope ran perfect.
