Getting there 

The upper wall can be approached by any of any of the approaches marked on the main overview map. The majority of the routes on this wall are 100 feet or less, though there are some excellent routes that require two ropes. The easiest way to get to the wall proper is to head up the shoulder of the Capulet side canyon and the main canyon.
