This polka dot covered gray and brown crag is guaranteed to be cool and uncrowded. On the right end is an excellant moderate splitter finger and hand crack called Wild Goose Chase 5.8+ **. In the middle are thin triple cracks 5.8+ **. Just left of center is a clean brown buttress with two TR's (Bolting ban). Both are 5.10 a/b **.
This cliff is on the way to the "Slatanic area." You go up Rattlesnake cyn. until just below "The Bulkhead" and then head left up the gully which leads east up the mountainside. Follow the gully until you can traverse up and right onto a small plateau area. The "Polka Dot Wall" is 200' down the first gully to the west. If you are going to the "Slatanic area" traverse west past the top of the "Polka Dot Wall" and drop 100' or so down the next gully till you can traverse farther west until directly below the routes.
