This wall is actually part of The Fortress and can be found on the eastern end of the formation between the Winter Prime and Red Pillar walls.

[editor's note: this is currently a combination of the Liebacks (left), Winter Prime (middle), and Sun Wall (right) areas from the Woodford's guide. If anyone has the urge, you can add the Liebacks or Winter Prime areas under the Fortress, and I'll move the routes to the right spots. -JJ ]

Getting There 

The current, most obvious trail ascends roughly in the middle of The Fortress; near the top, a trail should split right and lead you toward the eastern half from which you can gain access to the numerous walls.
