Nice granite, just not as well travelled as the closer walls.
Lots of great sport routes, most in the 40-60ft range.

The approach is a little more sketchy than the other walls, just watch your step when hiking in and out and while belaying.

Getting There 

Follow the trail down the stairs past "The Great Controversy" and bear right on to the wagon trail, following it for quite a while until you see a blue sign to the left (bolted to a rock on the ground) that says "Upper Fifth" follow the trail down to the canyon.
