A nice section of the Black Wall that is up from the road and away from the crowds. It faces south so it gets some sun but is also shady. The routes here are fairly long and can give you the sense of exposure.

Getting There 

Drive past the outhouse at Holds Up Bluff. After passing the Black Wall (about four miles after the bridge) there is a break in what has, up until now been a solid rock formation. On the South-facing rock of this formation you will find the tip toe area.

Ron Clark and I climbed the obvious corner system... originally in early 80's??... it was a very grotty gear climb in a dirty corner... (can't even remember the name we gave it)... and TanMan was a second pitch we linked on the small buttress above.
Years later I contrived a new line which moved onto the left side of the corner, and bolted the face climb... then named it TipToe.
TanMan is now a less obvious second pitch, because you need to traverse a fair bit right to the start... but I also bolted 3 very short face climbs across the face... just because you're there - and it's a way up to the next level, if you don't want to scramble.
