Description 

This is the main wall of the area, hosting a half-dozen or so routes, mostly easy to moderate. Hence, donít be surprised to find a crowd hanging out here. Although there are several routes here many share anchors so there can only be about three parties climbing at any time. The route on the far left with the hanging belay (Power Grid) has its own open shuts. The two overhanging jug-hauls in the center share an anchor. And all the routes on the right side starting with the slab share an anchor.

Some recent new development has happened on the far right side of the wall, around the corner. The routes look like they could still use some cleaning up.

Getting There 

After you pass over the dam and scramble down the hill into the wash, follow the stream for about 100 meters until you see a large wall on the left side with a ton of people swarming around it. Thatís it.

Katy throwing through the crux on Rolling Blackout...

Rolling Blackout 5.10c/d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  CA : Los Angeles Basin : ... : The Power Wall
Best route on the wall, IMHO. Start on some smaller pockets just right of the large huecos of Power Station. Crux at third bolt as you pull left around a protruding rock. Joins (the better half of) Power Station after that....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
