|The last part of the approach is a little tedious. I had a bit of trouble finding the side trail up to the wall, but eventually figured it out. Along the way, there are 2 cairns along the left side of the trail. Take the somewhat obscure spur at the second cairn. This is right before a stream crossing. Follow the trail up through talus and maybe some bushwhacking to get to the wall.|

Once you get to the approach that leads up to the wall from the main trail it gets pretty steep for a while. When you hit the wall just skirt accross it to get to the climb you want. Climbs around Jam Crack require a little bit of a scram, not bad though.
fun climbs with no walk off.

|Nathan's approach versus the Ruckman approach. Verdict=follow the candycane tree, unless you prefer loose talus. Nathan's route has more switchbacks, shade, and fewer steep spots.|

Parking: N40 37.594' W111 44.541' alt:5810ft.
Fork: N40 37.890' W111 44.816' alt:6350ft.
Mule Hollow: N40 37.916' W111 45.046' alt:6950.
I had trouble finding this my first time up and spent a lot of time and energy bush whacking and hiking up talus. Hope the following instructions help. The time estimates assume moderately fast hiking with packs. From the parking area, hike up the trail for 15 minutes, or 0.4 miles (don't go .75 miles like I did the first time). Look for a cairn marking the trail to the left. The stream bed will be on the right. The "candy cane" tree is no longer standing, but laying on the ground next to the trail. This trail cuts off before the route described in the Ruckman guide. Head up the steep trail. After roughly 10 minutes, look for the talus slope on the right and a small boulder in the middle of the trail. The trail forks here. If you go right you will hike through a little scree, then hit Mule Hollow wall after another 10 minutes of hiking. If you follow the left fork, you will be heading toward the Sea of Glass wall, and will hit it after another 10 minutes of hiking. Total time is 35-45 minutes.

|The uphill route You are on Your Own isn't listed here, but I'm giving it 4 stars anyway even with the funky approach.|
