A west-facing, dead vertical smooth face that is void of footholds for the first five feet.
Starter handholds lie just in reach of the ground.
A lowball traverse on the west side of the boulder that sits below THE DARK WALL.

Getting There 

There is a small reservoir (often dry)located north of Peabody St. on the grassy plain south of the canyon. From the north side of the little reservoir, follow exposed caprock to the north and slightly west until you come to a drainage. THE DARK WALL sits halfway down the drainage.
