This wall is predominately sport routes with a few mixed routes present. The climbing is slaby, the granite is good and the crystals prevalent. The Fall Wall gets a good amount of sun, which can be a good thing as it, sits at about 8000 feet. Most routes have two bolt rap anchors at the top. Some "Must Do" routes are 5.11 Crack (5.9+) and Cold Finger to the Hole (5.7).
From the Vedauwoo main entrance ($3/car or free on foot), drive in and follow the signs to Box Canyon. There's a good number of parking spaces, water, and restrooms. A paved trail leads out of the North end of the parking area. Follow this trail a short distance until a path cutting left to the rock is found. A bouldery approach is unavoidable and the wall is best gained by scrambling up at its right most edge. Ah hell, you can see all the routes from the parking lot. Just follow your nose.
