Description 

This north facing wall is seldom visited, but contains a good variety of climbs and a reprieve from the sun and rain. Only a few routes exist on this wall, but there is definitely room to grow. The right half of the wall contains some wildly steep test pieces and the left half is only slightly overhanging. Nothing but the normal high quality sandstone here with the route cleanliness improving as traffic increases.

Getting There 

Approach the same as for the Great Wall. When you reach the final switch-back for the Great Wall, at the stone ramp, continue straight for another minute and you will be at the furthest most right side of the wall.
