The Wall of the Dead is the highest area on the Second Tier. It holds three sport routes and one mixed (bolts plus gear) route. Dead Can Dance (9) is a popular route on the right side of the wall. The Dead Zone (10a) climbs a crack system just left of Dead Can Dance. Dead Again (10c) is a steep face route up the middle of the wall. Isle of the Dead (10c) climbs a black streak in the chimney to the left.
Climb up the talus field above the Tyrolean Traverse. A dirt path starts at the top of the talus. Follow the path uphill a bit until the trail splits. Continue up the hill on the right trail branch. You'll eventually reach a steep wall with a scooped-out face; this is the route Strange Science. Continue right and up the hill, following a loose and eroded trail. On the left is the Middle Wall slab; directly above is The Wall of the Dead. A deep chimney separates the two walls.

Start at the left side of The Wall of the Dead, in the chimney that is the start for Tomb of Sorrows.There is a loose shelf leading up into the chimney and the first bolt is in a black-streaked area on the right.The route is well bolted and has some good moves through the middle section. Gain a rest at a flake and go for the crux moves approaching the anchor above a bulge of sorts. Good quality rock, good protection, rather continous and interesting climbing....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
