Mount Charleston Wilderness Area MORE INFO >>>


The Imagination Wall is located directly above the Mary Jane Falls trailhead in Kyle Canyon. The blue-gray and yellow wall reaches over 300 feet in some places and the climbing is mostly vertical or just off vertical. The holds are often small water runnels or edges, unlike the pockets at the Hood.

Getting There 

Take S.R. 57 from I-95 all the way past the Mt. Charleston hotel into Kyle Canyon.

Follow this road as it winds up the hill until you encounter a sharp left-turning bend in the road.

Immediately before this bend, turn right off of the road onto Echo Rd. and continue uphill and follow the signs toward the Mary Jane Falls turn-off.

Park on the southeast side of the lot by the old rope tow.

Hike up until the rope tow levels off.

Continue up the wash a short distance until you veer out of the wash toward the right end of the wall.

The Imaginator is a consistant and fun outing up the center of the Imagination Wall.Begin at the center of the wall near a fairly tall tree. There are three small, short dihedrals here (maybe 40' tall). The leftmost one has a black roof/bulge extending from it's top off to the left. Begin in the rightmost one.P1: Climb up the dihedral past a few bolts then continue up the face above to a pillar-feature.
