The Unnamed Wall has a variety of climbs, ranging from fat WI 3 to very difficult mixed (M7-9). Unlike the Genesis/Mummy areas, the Unnamed Wall is favorably located on the sunny aspect of the canyon. However, this does cause less consistency in the formation of several routes. Also note that lead climbing is required here as there is no easy way to walk around to set up top-ropes.

Getting There 

The Unnamed Wall approach (with a beaten path) is shorter than one might expect. From the Hyalite Creek/Peak aka Grotto Falls Trailhead follow the main trail for a short distance to the first major clearing (the one with the trail sign at its far side). Follow the first trail off to the right (west) down to the creek. Cross the creek and traverse right around a steep hill. Then, angle left up a wide drainage, and go right past the tree choked gully. Continue up to the talus slope and hike up its right side to arrive at the cliff band just left of the impressive climb of Bingo World. Approach times will vary from somewhere around 25-45 minutes depending on the trail conditions and one's hiking speed.

The Thrill is Gone M4  MT : Hyalite Canyon : The Unnamed Wall
Probably the most classic mixed route in Hyalite, follow the chimney corner feature up until you step out onto the ice on the left. Can be toproped with a 70m rope but a 60m rope will NOT touch down, even with a 70 you should tie stopper knots....[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
