Description 

A secluded zone that pretty much represents the end of the developed climbing on the first band of the trailside walls. It lies just beyond the Music Wall and the small and obscure Upper Limits Wall sits above its left side. Not much traffic on this wall, despite some great Canyon sport and trad lines.

Getting There 

The traditional approach took one of several steep erosion chutes directly up to the wall from the main hiking trail. This is still the most direct method, but it certainly isn't the most pleasant.
A new approach involves skirting the base of the cliffs on a cleared path from Big Bird Wall (see approach under that wall description). From the staging area under Edwards Crack and Big Bird, simply contour along the cliffs. This path is pretty well defined to Gecko Stubbs Wall, then becomes less so. Hopefully more traffic and some continued maintenance will improve it in the near future. Although more circuitous, this approach minimizes erosion and any nasty loose uphill, and you can ogle all the climbs up close on the walk.
