To say the Short Wall is a popular spot is an understatement and with it's distinct lack of approach, sunny south-facing orientation and abundance of easy to moderate crack and face routes it's no surprise. Although many of the routes can easily be lead, and are often soloed, it's toproping that rules here. Expect to find multiple ropes strung up on weekends as it's a popular spot with youth groups and other organizations teaching basic rock climbing - fortunately mid-week is more relaxed.
Make a left (heading southeast) at Billboard Buttress, which is the road leading to Rattlesnake Canyon. The Short Wall is on the left, facing south, just before two roads merge into one. Day use parking is available at the eastern end of the wall with room for approximately 8 vehicles.
