This is a sunny southwest facing wall that features some fun climbs which require mostly balance, stemming and mantling. The sequences on many of the climbs are not straight forward and will require creative footwork. All of the routes can be easily top roped via chain anchors at the top of the cliff. Space Cowboy 5.9+ should not be missed.
The approach to this area takes about 5 minutes. Park at the pull out just before the Windy Point parking area. There is a small drainage which leads down to the top of the cliff. You can set top ropes from here and then walk around to the east of the wall to reach its base. This wall is just behind New Wave Wall.

Inch up using crimps, mantles, and smears until you are finally able to rock up into a casual stance. After the second bolt the climbing eases in difficulty but remains thoughtful.While low-angle slab climbing repulses the current generation of climbers, I personally love the style and thus immensely enjoyed this line.
