Description 

Tallulah's Main Wall is on the north side of the gorge.

Getting There 

From the Interpretive Center, head south toward the gorge rim following a trail behind the building. After crossing a footpath, the trail gets quickly steeper and includes some near-5th class downclimbing; roping up (or rappelling) is highly recommended. Following the downclimb, continue south on the trail and cross a small creek to get to the base of the cliff.

An alternate way to get to the base is to find the tree at the top of Digital Delight and rap in (hint: it's the tree with slings and a bomber cable wrapped around it). Ask someone who's been there before how to find it.
