This is a stunning, 350 foot Wingate cliff located just downstream from Psycho Tower. Back in the '80s and '90s Charlie Fowler and company put up a few routes here including a 3 pitch line to the rim. Currently there are only a handful of established lines, but many more single and multi-pitch lines await future ascents. The wall is mainly west-facing and gets great afternoon sun. You won't be finding any crowds here. The best times to climb are in the spring and fall.
See directions as for Psycho Tower. From pullout, drive approximately 2 miles down 20R until you see the west-facing cliff on your right before you get to the bridge. Park where possible, and find the best way up to the wall. There are no real trails leading to the base, although starting below the right end of the wall seems to be the best path. There is a faint climber's trail along the base of the cliff.
