Description 

This wall is actually located in the main Indian Creek Drainage, but trail access begins just right of the fork of FS rd. 9. The wall's aspect is mostly west except for a few routes. The rock tends to be gray and can be damp for some time after a rain.

The average rock quality is somewhat low, but there are a fair number of moderate routes. Despite the great height of the wall, most routes are rather short.


Getting There 

Park near the bridge at the split of FS Rd. 9. Walk a few yards down 9b (right fork) and look for a trail on the left side of hte road.

Follow the long trail to the wall.

note for anyone going here, there is a train right across from the area that you park. This is NOT the trail that leads to the wall. Go about 30 feet to the right of this trail and you will find the walkin.
