The Main Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The Main Wall Overview Topo
The overhanging wall which is the main attraction at The Shredding. On the Main Wall Proper there are 8 routes from 5.11a to 5.13c.
Follow the path from the pullout up through the forest past the Approach Wall, which is a slabby wall with 3 routes on it. Continue on the trail past the Outer Wall which is taller and steeper than the approach wall. Two options from here, either locate the chasm in the outer wall and tunnel through or walk up and around the outer wall and drop into what I refer to as the Grotto. The main wall is directly in front if you chose the tunnel option or on the right if you chose the up and around option
