This is the north-facing side of the "Second Plancha Wall" in the Virgin Canyon -- it is up and right from the "Wonder Wall".

Access issues inherited from El Potrero Chico

Most of the climbing here is in a State Park and there is no fee to enter. Please help maintain a clean environment in order to help maintain these privileges.


Walk up through the pools to the "Wonder Wall" then from the right end of this wall, hike up into the scree towards the obvious pillar (Yogi's Pillar).

Climb the long obvious dihedral system up to the ridge.

About 30ft right of "Access Denied".

Start in the left corner of the pillar and climb the chimney to the top of the piller, then move to the face and up. (3rd pitch is long, with intermediate anchor for the rappel.)

Climb Yogi's Pillar on the front left corner.

(Ed lists it as 5.7, 5.7 -- but nothing on the first pitch approaches 5.7, and the 2nd pitch seems soft at its grade, too.)

Climb Yogi's Pillar on the right side.

Climbs right of the pillar all the way to the top of the wall. (2nd pitch is long and has an intermediate anchor for rappel.)

TR the left side of the wall from the anchors of "Coatimundi".

This climb is on a small wall about 250 yards right of Yogi's Pillar.
