Description 

Munchkin Wall is a long cliffband of pretty good rock that faces in a generally northern direction along the ridgetop. There's a pretty good range of difficulty here, from 5.7 all the way to 5.12. This is a pretty good spot for the hotter parts of the year, but get an early start as the sun swings around and will hit the face later in the day from the west. Very popular climbing area!


Getting There 

From the general area description:
Drive to the end of the Rose Canyon road and park in one of the large lots, there is also some parking along the road if it is crowded. I think as long as you park by a blue dumpster, you are ok. From the slabs behind the (defunct) snack bar and picnic ramada, pick up a trail(about the top and middle of the slabs, maybe a little on the left side) heading north/east(the trail will go mostly east and curve south slightly) and take it to the ridgeline(crossing several fallen trees), then follow it to a clearing/slab. For the Towers, Wall of Marching Munchkins, and Wall of Dancing Dwarves, turn right and follow a short section of well-groomed switchbacks downhill to the climbs. For the Wall of Waltzing Witches, turn left at the clearing. All trails should be well-maintained and marked with cairns.
