Description 

This is a fairly long wall that is really tall. Good flat landings make it friendly to bouldering if you have alot of friends and pads. Yesterday was the first time I climbed it, alone with 2 pads.

Getting There 

Follow the wall down the back side to the right of The Shoulder Boulder you will eventually walk right past it. It's up hill from The Sisters trail less than 100 yards.

Climbing Season

For the Alderfer/Three Sisters Park area.

Against the Grain V5 6C CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : The Highball Wall
Start on the far left with an undercling. You can be standing and can be in a no handed rest. Traverse right using underclings. You get to a no handed rest before using more underclings up. Fall into sloper with right hand and left handed crimp to drop to better feet. Traverse right and up slightly to resting position with good undercling and crimp. Reach far right to gaston, move left hand to okay crimp, drop foot, match hands while leaning right, and gain good right hand semi-undercling....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Traversing up and to the right from the bottom left(following the flake) seems like it would be fun, but it definitely goes into the no fall zone.
