This wall begins just past the 'Pratt's Crack Area' where the wall touches the creek. In the Spring, the creek crossing can be a bit tricky if the water is high, but it is usually a mellow affair.

The wall was mostly the work of Louie Anderson, and contains the heaviest concentration of 5.12's in the canyon to date. All the routes are good, except for 'Bubonic', which is a pile. 'Atomic Gecko' and its associated link-ups are all classic, as is 'Wind in the Willows', which can be done at soft .12a or .12d with the extension.
