Off the beaten path, the Vertical Wall is a nice afternoon cragging area since it is in the shade. Nice clean stone that climbs more like Lemon than Vallecito.

Getting There 

Hike on trail past the High Times Wall, and the Slabs. Instead of dropping to the slabs, traverse straight across to the wall. Approach is about 20 minutes from car.
