Description 

This wall is one of the most secluded sections of the Endless wall. There are not a whole bunch of high quality routes here, but its worth the hike to climb the Mechanical Bull (13a). Most routes are 5.11 to 5.12 with an equal distribution of trad and sport lines.

Getting There 

Take the ladders to the cirque and then hike for ten minutes along the base of the cliff (climbers left). Total approach time from the Cirque ladders is 10 minutes. You'll know you're close when you pass by the obvious 10' "Stalagtite" that is imbedded in the ground.

Be ready to fire off your entire round to send this short left-leaning, bolted seam. Although the rock is chossy, the movement and aesthetics of the line make this a worthwhile venture if you're in the area. 5.11 climbing on some suspect rock will take you to the sobering crux right above the third bolt. Navigate your way around the thin bouldery crux and then continue fighting up the crack using a combination of insecure laybacking and face moves. Should this thing go to the top of the cliff.
