Down and right of the Red Wall, this series of steep buttresses and faces is known variously as the Resurgance, Renaissance or Regurgitation Walls, depending on your point of view. Lots of routes went in during the late 80's early 90's using the unwritten 3 bolt rule ("The New Policy"). Up to three bolts was ok, more was a travesty. This was the "last hurrah" of new routing at Crowders and yielded a handful of quality lines..

Getting There 

Circle down past the right end of Red Wall. The first rock you should come to is New Policy Wall. A bit further right is Trundlasaurus Buttress. Below here is Plane Above Your Head, and below this is Rawlhide Wall.
