|Is this another name for Jailhouse Rock?|

This wall is named for the nearby Nature Trail which winds through the desert starting from the western loop of the CG road.
This is not Jailhouse Rock (or the backside of it) as indicated in Bartlett's Indian Cove Y2K Supplement. He does list a route called Prison Blues (5.8) which is actually the route Nature Walk (5.8) on this wall. Hope this clears up any confusion.

|Walking around and trying to figure it out way back when, Chris Parks and I wandered back and forth and eventually also reached the conclusion that this was the backside (North) of the Jailhouse rock. While perhaps it is not actualy the same monolith, one can certainly find the rock by approaching it as it is such. We rated (blind to any guide) the routes as 5.7, 5.8, 5.3 and 5.6, from left to right.|

I too thought this was Jailhouse today and was wondering why the descriptions in the older Vogel book didn't really match up! Went for it anyway and had some good fun... it was just right for the relatively inexperienced group I brought here today (a Monday).
Usually swarming with Boy Scouts on weekends, it seems!
