Very rarely visited cliff. It used to be more visited when the road didn't go up to Junkyard, nowadays people bypass this cliff for Junkyard goodness.

This wall starts as a low dirty cliff that never sees ascents. Once you see the alcove with a roof you'll know you have arrived and then you'll start jumping on some of the worthwhile climbs at this area.

The Floating Block is a particularly cool feature along this wall.

Getting There 

Beyond The Roc, west of South Bridge Wall. Park as for Bridge Buttress and walk west along trail. This cliff begins after breakdown.
