Great route, recently cleaned. 5.8 hand crack leads to a crux finger crack section near top of route. Fun route!
Approach from trail to Private Idaho, cairn marks the turn-off to the left. Trail is easy to miss.
Standard rack. You can get a #3 Camalot in down low, and finger size gear protects the crux (yellow TCU).
Rappel from tree (bolted rap anchor would a great addition)
Most needed protection might be DEET.

the top out was a bushy, dirty, mossy mess. Now cleaner as of Aug 2013. New sling on tree, but still needs anchor.

I'm not sure about the mention of DEET in the description of "Protection". I've never noticed many bugs there, certainly no more than elsewhere. It might be a joke, a reference to the wall's name "Wall of 10,000 insects".
