About The Ghetto Wall:

This wall is almost an expert only overhung wall with all routes bolted and chained. The approach is fun because the consequences can get you wet. What I'm talking about is 5.5 1rst traverse, and a 5.8 2nd traverse in your street shoes with your gear on your back over a two to five foot pool of water. It's actually a nice pre-warm-up.
Approach: Take the Gorge Trail past the visitors center, complete 5.0 traverse on left side of rockpools just past apes wall, go upstream on right side, complete two more traverses and look for caves on left side of stream
Approach Time: 45 minutes from Parking area in park
Latitude, Longitude: 34.09544, -118.73090
Access Issues:
Rock Type: Volcanic
Type of Climbing: Sport
Sun Aspect:
