Dark and shady in the morning, this is an interesting wall. This is the steepest and the biggest piece of the Vallecito area. It is host to some superb routes and some choss if you choose to climb in the wrong area. All established routes have been cleaned up due to traffic albeit light. This wall has a cool feel, and the climbing ranges from great sections of finger and hand cracks to edgy face climbing with everything in between. Some gear was found about 100' up this wall that appeared to be from the late '70s to '80s in era. The quartzite is very flaky and each year in the spring, chunks can be pulled off-have fun.
Either rappel down Da Kine Line anchors (make sure you have a single 70m), or rap down The Green Mile with a single 60m. New anchors have been added to Dr. Greenthumb to facilitate rapping this route with a single 60m also. Approach takes 20 minutes from the car to the top anchors. Please do not hike down around to cliffs as this causes considerable erosion, stick to rapping.
