This small wall has a good selection of easier problems, all with good flat landings. The wall faces South West which makes it an ideal spot in the winter months.
The wall lies very close to the Geothermal plant which gives the area an unlikely industrial feel.

A fun little pit stop if youre looking to get some easy mileage. 2 minutes from the highway, and about 20 seconds from your car. I was able to do nearly every problem on this wall in about 30 minutes (without knowing many of the "eliminates"). No real standout problems here, but the rock is of good quality.
