This rock has six vertical sport columns on juggy basalt, which makes smearing a simple and required task.
From the point where Shell Road turns to dirt, the trailhead to The Welcome Wall, The Pit, Cave Wall, Ort Wall and Mid Wall is 1.2 miles further down road. There is a very steep turnaround on the left side of the road, but better parking can be had another few hundred yards past the trailhead. You'll know you're on the right trail when you see a telephone pole with the numbers 40 with an arrow to the left and 41 with an arrow to the right spray-painted on it just to the right of the trail (its about 25 yards from the road, and you won't be able to tell until you get closer). Once you're on the correct trail, it gets pretty simple. Follow the trail (watch out for poison oak) until it reaches a large talus field. Continue diagnally up and left as you're looking uphill on the talus, and soon you'll be beneath the Welcome Wall.
