Another fine grouping of problems, on a beautiful long wall. Though mostly V0s, some of these lines are steep, and some of these lines are totally unique.

Getting There 

From the dirt road just past the store where you would go to the NPR wall and Boozepig wall, drive .9 miles further east on Lake Mary road (Or, about a mile from the store). Park on north side of the road (opposite the lake) and look for a faint trail leading up the gravely hillside. Look for a cairn here, but no others. Basically hike uphill zig zagging on elk trails but keep a straight uphill mark. Soon you will come across a decent sized wall below the main cliffband. Go left and up around this wall through a small drainage and you will see the Workshop wall. The Widowmaker wall is just to right via a decent little trail. You will know them when you seem them.

It's been nearly 15 years, but I remember we were calling one of these walls "The Wave Wall" because of its unique appearance.
