We were originally gonna name this route "The Fall of the Berlin Wall", but that was approaching paragraph length so we shortened it to just "Fall of the Wall"
Given the current Boulder Falls trail closure, note that it is possible to approach the Berlin Wall from the Dream Canyon parking lot and rap in. If you do so, please respect the private property near the parking lot and stay well away from the cabin that's located there. Also, at the top of the Berlin Wall be aware that there is lots of loose rocks and knocking any of it off could nail someone below you.
Hope you enjoy this route and it neighbor, East Germany 13a. :-)

There is a fixed rope to aid in getting up the gully if coming from Boulder Falls, it looked solid, so we used it to rappel back down the gully. Great route! Sustained.

The 3rd and 4th bolt have been moved to better clipping positions (lower and slightly right). Additionally a 2 bolt extension has been added so the route now goes to the top of the wall.

Fun route, choss mid-way, could use some crowbar action.
