I scratched my head when I first read Benningfield's guide to Carter Lake as there appeared to be two Pocket Walls listed. Was this an error? A Pocket Wall, and then The Real Pocket Wall, which mysteriously did not show up on the topo. I filed it away for future notation.

Once you're standing at the top of the Skunk Rub traverse, keep walking uphill and stay right of the next boulder you come to, the Call It Crock boulder with its tiny crimp and sloper chalk smudges. There isn't a trail, just scramble up the right of the rock to the tier above. Just to your right will be the Dead Trees Rock and the Flakey Pull Roof, and to your left will be the Real Pocket Wall.
