The Anasazi Wall is located on the West Face of Petroglyph Rock (The east side faces the Gunsmoke Traverse). The main attraction is Physical Graffiti (10d), a tightly bolted 2 pitch sport climb that features a hand traverse across a dike, then steeper face climbing to a surprising overhang and another dike.

Getting There 

From the Echo Rock parking lot, walk east all the way through the canyon between The Snickers and Big Hunk formations. You'll be walking directly toward the Anasazi Wall, which is located just up and left from the smaller Sandworm Rock on the right.
