Description 

This is the large northish facing clean wall opposite Southern Comfort Wall in the Towers Canyon (right side of the canyon). It is bounded by a right facing chimney system on the left and a blocky left facing buttress on the right.

Getting There 

Approach Southern Comfort Wall but drop below the small cliff below Southern Comfort Wall and continue uphill. Turn right when the canyon gets quite steep and contour over to the center of the wall.
