A shady wall until later morning to early afternoon. This primarily West-Facing Wall Lies just South of Way Rambo and Bioturbation Wall, and well North of Pistol Whipped. The wall can be identified by 3 "columns" up above on the summit cap, over the right end of the wall. Another notable feature is a left-leaning ramp at the far right side of the climbable area of this wall. The ramp goes from the base to within a few meters of the top of the wall and is climbable.
Turn off of the main highway through the Indian Creek Area onto Beef Basin Road and go 4.85 miles to the sharp left turn on Rd 1041 through 'The Cottonwoods' camping area, continuing across the sometimes high creek and past the camping to approach the East side of this sub-canyon, as for Way Rambo wall or Pistol Whipped. The road bends to the right and continues for some fraction f a mile to come to the base of a brown wall with a hog-back approach on it's right side. A large stacked Cairn at the road by a barely perceptible 'pull-off' is the start of the trail, which is reasonable defined, but loose in some areas. Approach for about 15-25 minutes depending on your fitness and number of cams in your pack. You will arrive at the wall near the base of a few short, un-named 10's and just right of the massive dihedral of the namesake route 'Sabbatical.
