Description 

The tallest region of the wall, roughly in the center-right region of the Upper Town Wall. The main trail ends at the left side of this wall, near the base of the Davis-Holland route, and just left of a large boulder-talus field.


Getting There 

From the Lower Wall parking, follow the train tracks to the GM area. Walk right past the start of GM and follow the obvious path uphill to the base of the wall.

Shrouded in mystery until recently, an ominous description in an older guidebook makes this route sound impossible and terrifying. In reality, the route merely suffers from a well-known Index paradox: like most long Upper Town Wall free routes, despite the fact that Rise and Fall is amazing and was established in the 90's and at a relatively modest grade, it saw few (if any?) subsequent ascents until the summer of 2010.
