The short (60-80'), north-facing wall way above the lower end of the main climbing wall at East Cottage Dome. Major drop off below climbs, 3rd to 4th class approach on ledge, most will want a "ground" belay anchor for the routes on right side of wall (thin cams mostly). All older routes have 1/4" bolts except the crux (3rd) bolt on Late For Dinner Again.

Getting There 

Approach by hiking up over the top of the dome and around to the base. Not super easy to find correct approach ledge first try. It's also possible to climb both pitches of Flintstone to access the right end of approach ledge.
