Description

This overhanging sandstone wall has just a handful of bolted routes but they are just amazing. Orange rock, impressive huecos in an awesome setting - the approach alone is worth going there. As the canyon is already rather narrow at this wall, it stays in the shade all day and it can be a bit windy.

Don't climb if the rock or the base is wet as the sandstone becomes soft and will most likely break!

Approach

Drive into Zion National Park at Kolob Canyon (just off exit 40 on I-15) and park at the South Fork parking. Across the street in the curve starts a hiking trail leading you into the canyon. Follow this trail for about 2.5km and you will see Namaste Wall on your right. After that, the canyon becomes really narrow.

Grade Route

The first route on the left with huge huecos up to the first anchor. Find nice rest positions and pull big holds all the way up.

The first route on the left with huge huecos. Pass the intermediate anchor and continue up 3 more bolts.

Awesome line right of 1/2 Route. A 80m rope will barely bring you back down. Watch out for the swing when unclipping the first bolt.

The line in the orange part of the wall with big huecos. One jug bigger than the other - find an awesome rest in a big hole!

Easy moves but pumpy and long! What a line!! A 70m rope will bring you down to the ground.

Unfinished project at the right of the wall. Don't climb, bolts are not good
