Just upstream from the Wildfire Wall lies this fantastic line of columns. The narrow approach (aka The Catwalk) is just above the river. The cracks here are remarkably good and would be worth a weekend trip unto themselves.

Getting There 

Follow the trail upstream from the Wildfire Wall along the narrow catwalk.
