A vertical wall containing several wide, black water streaks. The routes are long and the holds are smaller than at some of the other Maple walls. Completing these routes takes good decision making and endurance rather than raw power.

The area is named for the pictographs that can be seen on the right side of the Left Fork trail, just past the bridge.

Andrew Burr created an interesting image of the wall for Climbing magazine:

The climber in the image is on Kingpin.

(The description of the image here in Climbing magazine's collection of wallpaper images says she's on The Emancipation of Dissonance but it's wrong.)

Getting There 

On the right side of the Left Fork trail, the wall is located directly across from the left side of The Pipeline; beyond the fence-protected pictographs found just past the trail bridge.

The wall's right side is defined by a wide, black waterstreak that runs behind a tree, and the left side by a large, boulder-like outcropping up the slope on the left.
