Description 

This is a more obscure area in the Valley. You may wish to scope it out first without a pack on a rest day, although once you know the approach it is not that bad.


Getting There 

Hike east from the Mirror Lake trailhead (east end of the valley, beyond Washington Column) for about a half mile. Cross the first series of creek beds and follow them straight up the hill untl a traverse right leads to the base of the left side of the wall.
