East is the direction most climbers take when they come to T-Wall. There's a phenomenal amount of climbing here, ranging from easy 5.6-5.7 for beginners up to outrageous 5.13 roof cracks, and everything in between. On sunny winter weekends, prepare to wait in line for popular classics like Art
, Golden Locks
and Razor Worm
, all an easy hike from where the trail splits. Or to get away from the crowds, head further down the wall to some lesser-known but worthwhile gems.
Coming up the main approach trail, take the right fork below the waterfall. The trail levels out and continues along the base of the wall for a long distance. Approach time is around 20 minutes. The approach is uphill, but fairly gentle, the entire way.

Located on a narrow buttress of rock with a steep cave at ground level, just right of the 13 with the chains and Mrs. Socrates. Climb up through an intial band of roofs on jugs, then plug in some high gear before pulling unto the face above via some powerful liebacks.
