This is a nice wall with some long sport and trad routes. Several moderate trad lines are worth doing as well as some harder sport routes.
Halfway between the dam and the Falls Wall and the East Rim, the quickest approach is via the Creek Bottom Trail. Cross the creek above the falls, then head up the hill to the South. This is the last major section of rock before the canyon point, East of the dam.

This is a great little place to work on basic technique such as ascender work, self-rescue, setting pro, etc. The roof provides a well-anchored free-hanging rappel to dink around with ascenders. The 5.7 and 5.8 trad climbs are good first trads climbs. Please don't bring dogs... I get tired of dog rodeos at climbing areas. "Thanks."
