A long wall of columns, some reaching more than 100 feet. Both traditional and sport routes, although continuous cracks are rare and mostly concentrated on the right (shorter) end of the wall.

Getting There 

Follow the approach for South Fork Cliff. Continue past the Astral Wall and hike around a toe of the cliff, then along the base of a wall of lower-angled columns to access a ramp that takes you to the base of the wall. Takes around 15 minutes to reach the base of the wall from the end of the spur road.
