The Practice Wall is a good place for top-roping. It's also a good place for large groups of people (climbers and hikers alike). This is not a place to find seclusion, however, it is a good place to warm-up. The rock sees lots of climbers, so most of the loose stuff has bee removed leaving some high-quality rock. This cliff sees sun until mid-afternoon.
This is the easiest area to find since the trail ends right on top of it (literally). to access the bottom, follow the social trail to the right.
