Chapel Wall

Climbs 30 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 1500m a.s.l – Faces N

Crag features

Mixture of trad and sport climbs behind the Yosemite Chapel, mostly in the grade range 5.11-5.13. Receives a lot of shade, so can be a good option on a warm day. The climbs in the Heathenistic Pursuit area can also stay dry in a light rain.

There are more climbs to the left (Public Sanitation Wall) and the right (Chapel Wall continuation). Public Sanitation Wall climbs were left out of the previous definative guidebook at the request of the Park Service.


Approach notes
