A big low-angle slab with little in the way of fixed gear and way off the beaten track, but for getting alone and climbing great routes in incredible scenery, this wall is hard to beat.
Park at the outhouse on Archangel Road. Cross the creek and head up left of The Diamond/Toto Buttress. Keep on going and going and going past an old mine shaft and tailing pile and several other walls with great routes on them. Eventually you'll find a large gully on the right, which I can't verbally differentiate from any of the other various large gullys except to say that a short distance up it on the right side will be an obvious massive flat slab. That's it.
