This is another shady NW facing wall that is often less crowded than other walls. Most of the lines on this wall are very featured faces containing lots of iron bands.
Either head to the What About Bob Wall and walk left past the wall or head to the back of the Sore Heel parking lot and make a left instead of a right. Follow this trail uphill through muddy patches to your first turn off to the right. Turn right and head towards the wall. The trail here meets the wall by Delayed Gratification.
