This less traveled overhung wall is stout and slightly hidden.

It was an all traditional route wall but there is now a bolted line towards the right side of the wall (which can be done traditionally). By the look of the bolts this is a fairly new addition to the wall.

Getting There 

1)From MIDDLE FINGER BACKSIDE hike up the gully as if you were setting up a top rope.

Head down the other gully in between TWO PITCH WALL and MIDDLE FINGER BACKSIDE RIGHT.

Head towards the small spire directly in front of you as you finish descending the gully (it has a fixed pin and a bolt with a chain anchor and should be on your left as you walk by).

Scramble up and around the corner and CAR WALL is the overhanging wall above your head.

2)Walk past 'THE FORTRESS WALL' and stay close to the left side of the cliff (facing away from Charlotte). Look down and find the easiest looking gully to scramble down the the base of CAR WALL. There is an easy to spot bolted chain anchor on the far right of the wall.
