One of my favorite areas in all of the Falls. A really cool south facing wall that I think holds some of the best climbing and is usuall devoid of people.

Getting There 

When you take the access rope down turn left and cross the creek. follow the trail for a long way (past The Monument and Rainy Day Roof) through the Town Square Area and then you are there.
