Pirate Wall is located deep in the South/East corner of the South Fork of Oak Creek Canyon. I guess you could really say it's like the West Face of Mt. Wilson or the Cactus Flower Tower. It looks similar to Mescalito but not as wide. It hosts a lot of nice looking cracks as well as face climbs. Yeah. They're all unclimbed. Except for Line Of Addiction.
Hike past Johnny Vegas and when you come to where the canyon forks to go to Eagle Wall, go left (South/West). Take this through lots of boulder hoppin in the wash until the wash forks again. Go left again (South). This will eventually spit you out at a big dry water fall with a huge slab below it comparable to the Rainbow Wall's.
