Description 

Despite the popularity of the nearby and sometimes crowded Rubicon this wall sees little action. Although fairly large it only has a handful of routes with For Peter (5.11c) being the best of the bunch.

Getting There 

From the Split Rock parking area follow a climber's trail southwest past the turnoff for Grand Canyon proper and take a left at the next wash to reach the formation which is located across from Rubicon.
