Excellent rock, good quality traditional routes, and a bit of shade characterize this north-facing wall. Most of the climbs are four pitches long and end on a broken ledge system part way up the main face. The standard descent is via the gully on the left (east) side of the face. Some scrambling and 2 or 3 short rappels get you down to the easy terrain. As you approach the bottom stay tight to the left and hug the base of the cliff. Climb down through a small notch to arrive exactly at your pack.
Park at the First Creek trailhead on Route 159. Follow a wide trail west. As the trail nears the mouth of the canyon, it drops into the wash for a while. It then continues on the bench on the south side of the stream until it climbs the short steep hill to the base of the wall
