This section of cliff is the right most section of the area with Simpsons wall. Left of Iceberg and Necro wall after they break down

Getting There 

Take the trail out of the parking area closest to the gravel road, cross the stream and stay straight at the first two forks (one will be ~150ft after the stream and the next about another 150ft). Follow the trail up hill and cross over some stream beds to the left at some point. The trail gets steep and goes straight up hill eventually. You come out right in front of a large chimney, this is Fat City. Bovine and Lime House are to the right, Simpsons wall is to the left.

You can also access the area from Iceberg or Necro one of three ways. From Iceberg walk left and pass Necro and cross a field of talus. You'll come up on a bolted line (Limehouse) and a hand and finger crack (Bovine Crack)

From the Iceberg Scramble to the top of the cliff through the corridor and walk climbers left along the edge of the field.

From Iceberg walk back down to the parking lot and take the right hand fork before the river. This will take you into the Simpsons wall trail.

Bovine Wall is east facing, so sunny in morning, shady in afternoon.
