This 100' high cliff contains high-quality moderate crack climbs, difficult face and crack climbs, and several sport routes. The rock is excellent and this wall has much fewer people than the Lower Town Wall. It is surrounded by thick forest and the left side of the wall is shady at the base.

Getting There 

Park in town, walk down the railroad tracks, and midway through the bend, look on the right for a trail that starts with a wooden bridge. This trail goes to Private Idaho, Rattletale, Lookout Point, Duck Wall, the Diamond, as well as some popular boulders. After passing a large boulder on the right, the trail starts ascending through wooded talus. Soon thereafter is a T-junction; the trail to the left goes to Rattletale (and a way to Duck Wall & the Diamond), the trail to the right goes to Private Idaho, Hag Crag, Lookout Point, Duck Wall & the Diamond area. After a few more minutes of ascending overgrown talus, a trail takes off right (just below the 'Brad Driscoll' outcrop). This trail skirts below Private Idaho and provides access to all of the routes.

The directions listed are based upon parking at the Bush House. Also, this area really isn't on the UTW trail.

Thanks sqwirll.
We fixed things so that PI is no longer linked to the Upper Wall Trail. And I clarified the directions.
