Description 

This is situated just above Second Grotto Wall. Although it is a slog to get up here, this wall hosts a classic Harvey Carter line, a fun 12a sport route, and the potential for many more lines. Better yet - you can arrive here by doing the Grotto Wall link-up: climb Lower Grotto Wall to Second Grotto Wall to Third Grotto Wall. This makes for a fantastic day!


Getting There 

Scramble up to Second Grotto Wall and then around to the right. A steep gully leads to a ramp that rises along the base of Third Grotto Wall.
