What the Rusty Wall lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. There are two excellent, steep cracks to climb here: O'Kelley's Crack
(5.10c) on the right and Wangerbanger
(5.11c) to the left.
From Echo Tee, hang a left and, if driving, park where the dirt road ends at a gate, which is the entrance to Keys Ranch. Walk west towards the obvious orange-colored wall. Approach time: 10 minutes.

In my opinion, the best route in the park by a signifigant margin and one of the best routes anywhere....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

Murf - I'm just going by Randy's guide here. He categorizes Rusty Wall under "Echo Rock Area". It's right on the border between Echo and The Outback.
