The Bauhaus Wall is about as obscure as it gets at Rifle with it's 3-minute approach and protective screen of trees. Thusly, anything rad you send here will probably go un-noticed, so consider wisely before commiting yourself to one of the wall's many ultra-long, mega-hard projects. The wall can basically be broken into two sectors: the warm-up sector out left, which includes three quality 5.11's, two nice 5.12's and a bouldering cave; and the Bauhaus proper, which begins with the hanging prow of Gomorrah (13d) and cruises right past Rifle's hardest route, Tomfoolery (14b), and a handful of other 13/13+ desperates.
The Bauhaus Wall is about mid-way between the Wasteland and the Ruckman Cave, if this makes any sense. It is the first huge crag on your left past the Skull Cave, and is just up-canyon from an impressive water-spout/ice-cave feature with a huge dead log leaning against it. There is a pull-out on the right with a Porta-potty just past a talus slide, or you can park on the left at a picnic area (best not to park here on weekends as people actually use it). Cross the bridge, walk upstream about a minute then duck left on a climber's trail through the thick foliage (nettles). The first route you see is Roadside Prophet (13d), which climbs out the pocketed wave/cave overhead.
