Quality stone, an easy approach, and plenty of classic moderates is how most describe High Wire. This wall is packed with excellent routes in the 5.8-5.10 range, including the multi-pitch classic People’s Choice (5.10d), which climbs up a steep, exposed dihedral 200 feet above the base of the cliff. The only downside to this cliff is that it gets super hot in the summer morning/days and is often extremely crowded. However, it is a great wall to come to on a summer evening or a winter day with its southeastern position.
Approach: Located on the east side of Tunnel 2, park at a long, narrow pullout on the north (right) side of the road 6.0 miles up canyon. Do not park on the south side of the road; there has been a history of cars being smashed by loose blocks, and you may be ticketed. After parking, walk towards the tunnel, cross to the south side of the road and take the steep trail up a few feet of third class terrain before gaining a smoother approach trail that leads to the base of the cliff. The first climb encountered is Nickels and Dimes.
