A Wall along with the Comic Gallery make up the largest concentration of routes at Pictured Rocks. On Sundays When the University has it's classes giving many students their first outdoor climbing experiences, this wall is crowded. The kids usually are done around 2-3 depending on how fast they tire. Other than Sundays, this wall generally isn't that crowded.
From the main trail walk past Wild Iowa wall and the Razorblade Boulder, you should see a large face with a clearing below it on the left.

Does anyone have an overhead topo of the area (walls/trails in relation to parking lot)? Would be handy to print for first time visitors like myself.
