This wall is across the canyon from the Contest Wall. It will be in the shade until noon, or a little after. It has fewer sport routes than many other Shelf wells, but there are actually some trad routes in addition to the sport. From a glance, most routes are between 9 and hard 11, though there are many less frequented easy corners for the trad climbers.
Take the left turn into Sand Gulch just a few minutes after the road turns into gravel. Take the road continuing to turn right, through some campsites until you get to the day parking lot. Walk a little west and you will spot the trail (same as for Contest Wall and Sand Gulch). Walk 15, not more than twenty minutes. Branch off to the right at the sign.

Climb the arete past sharp holds then up blocky terrain to a rest ledge. Tread lightly on the blocky rock above the 4th bolt. Clip the 2 bolts at the bottom of the headwall (the lower bolt keeping the rope out of the way). Make hard moves onto the headwall, then face climb up pockets/edges to the top of the headwall. May be slightly easier for taller climbers. Finish up at the anchors at the nice ledge. Lower or rap 80 feet.
