Description 

This large wall is host to a number of fine routes but despite that it sees little traffic, probably because the routes tend to be hard, runout or a bit of both. Nonetheless, Grand Canyon Donkey Trail (5.10a R), Stitch in Time (5.10d), The Woodshed (5.11d) and Every Which Way but Up (5.12b R) are worthy if in the area.


Getting There 

From the Split Rock parking area follow a climber's trail southwest, aiming for a wall with a distinctive diagonal dike system clearly visible on the approach. Turn left into a bushy, rock-filled valley aiming for the right side.

This is another much neglected climb, but due to its visibility from the parking lot at Split Rocks, and it's relatively accessible difficulty, it should see lots more action. The crack is very exciting and varied. The first bolt is solid, and the first few nut placements are excellent as well and easy to place. Technical crux is just at the start of the thin crack, but there is a possibility of failure near the top of the block due to the pump from jamming the flaring crack at the top.
