Description 

The Left Wall is a stunning section of rock which sports heady starts that lead to wonderfully split cracks. It is the meat and potatoes of the Waterfall area. Many of the routes here were done by Darren Singer, Daniel Miller, and Jason Keith in the early nineties. Many of these pitches are regarded as classic. Includes all routes from Rising Sun on the left to Bladerunner on the right.

This wall gets morning sun, and afternoon shade. But, be careful because the base is overgrown and often shady...

Nick Rhoads on Spite and Malice.

Spite and Malice 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ 20 E3 5b  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : The Left Wall
Spite and Malice has everything a route needs to be a classic. A heads up start on suspect rock leads you to an obtuse stem box. Work your way up the left finger crack until you can do a couple traverse moves (5.10) into the right hand finger crack. Keep moving up this crack as it grows ever steeper! Look for face hold relief, but be ready to jam your heart out... A great long pitch that delivers a full body workout. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
