This is an excellent, south-facing 'little sister' to the Wichita Wall with great rock and easy access. From the parking area, it's easy to spy the wall down and right of the looming Wichita Wall. It has a bit of a shorter approach, yet it is not necessarily an easier crag to get to. It has a fun mix of bolted, MIXED and trad lines. The rock is quality gneiss with slab, face, and roof lines. This is another great Summit County crag with the most trad/mixed lines in the 10 Mile Canyon!
A. Left Arete, 6.
Park as per the Wichita Wall. From the Frisco exit 201 on I-70, ride the shoulder for approximately 0.3 miles and pulloff into a small grassy pull-out. The trail forks right after @ 100' and trends up right to this base of the wall. The trail and base areas need some love. The signage is soon to be in place. You'll know you're in the right spot when you see the wooden signs on the old wood power-pole "stumps" at the parking area. It has a 5 minute approach, follow sign/cairns to the wall. The West Wall is reached via 4th class slabs. Staying on the trail leads to the Lower Corner, Chimney, and routes on the East Wall.

This is a great trad line that runs a sweet arete to a slabby finish. It has solid climbing with thin gear.Begin the route at the base of the chimney and trend out on the arete. A single 60m rope will do, 2 raps get you down via fixed anchors....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
