This wall was developed in 2002-2003 by Martin Berzins, Max Dufford, and Walter Anyan. A steep cave offering powerful, shorter routes on cobbles. This cave has cleaned up to be quite solid, but holds still occasionally break.
To find Choss cave, park off the road about ½ mile before the Dry wall pull-out. (There is small dirt road to a small opening). Find the small trail and follow either a stream or streambed, depending on season, for about 20 minutes. A small trail heads up right (there were some bones in the stream prior to the trail breaking right). Follow this trail up a drainage for about 5 minutes, then you should see a large cave up and left.
