This is a sunny wall briefly described in the current guidebook. A few routes here and there, most look fairly moderate and somewhat short. An awesome looking climb on the left side plaqued "Imagine" (no rating) looks like it has an insane bouldery start to a stellar finger to hand crack. Has this been freed?
Approach as for The Wall except take a right at the first major fork. Continue straight up canyon to a parking area and a well thought out trail that may be a little hard to find but worth it. (At least 75 cairns!)

Not exactly sure of route name, but does not appear to be in Bloom. Begins with broken and slightly loose climbing for the first half, up to a rounded ledge. Immediately off the ledge work your way through a pod with only marginal hands (steep, crux) and then jam a clean, right leaning hands crack to the anchors...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

"Imagine" has been climbed free. You start in the crack at the right, then work your way left (very difficult) to the main line. FA was done by Mark Hesse.
This wall is loaded with good moderate (10s and 11s) climbs. The great majority of climbs on this wall were put up by myself, Sam Crater, John Musso, and Ann Pinney. In the year 2000, only "Imagine" was established. We called the wall: "The Election" wall and most of the climbs have names related to politics. Most of the climbs end at about 25 to 30 meters, but several are longer including "Media Frenzy". It is hoped that the 2nd edition of David Bloom's guide will include more information on this wall.

Interesting Nelson. We got the new guidebook the day after our first visit to 75 Cairns/Election Wall and I was wondering why the name was different. We only climbed three of the routes there but there seemed to be enough to go back for. The trail up was good too. I was glad I had replacement webbing for all the routes we did.

I've heard this wall called the Cow Pie in the Sky before. I think it is a pretty fun spot away from the crowds.

Not sure why the name here still reflects 75 Cairns instead of the Election Wall. I guess for the same reason the "Back Wall" isn't called by its original name of the Sand Wall.
