Route Description

Rock Rimmon Apr. 10th.

The Western Wall is a great section for beginning rock climbers. It is not surprising to see a cub scout, girl scout or boy scout troop to use this section as there first rock climb. At a 70 degree angle and roughly a 100 feet elevation with no overhangs and no real tricky section, this rock is great way to get a feeling of true rock climbing.

There are two hooks in the rock on the western wall which allows you to toprope this section of Rock Rimmon. Use some caution because there tends to be glass on this rock .

Essential Gear

Bring all essential rock climbing gear:

Helmet, rope, proper footwear, belay gear, chalk, etc.
