This is a long south and west facing wall which is home to the ever popular Gunsmoke (V3) which traverses the wall in it's entirety. Several other problems and variations exists but it's the one that sees the bulk of the traffic.
Park in the large paved lot and follow a trail past the old parking lot and then straight on for a bit until a sharp turn to the left midway along a worn trail (continuing straight ahead leads to Barker Dam), pass a short rocky section, go a bit further and turn right to enter a broad open valley - the Gunsmoke traverse will soon be visible at about one o'clock (slightly to the right). Plan on a 10 minute hike from the car.
