Fun wall if you are looking for some 5.7-5.9 gear/bolt climbing.

Enjoyable area with a good concentration of moderate gear and gear/bolt routes. We accessed from following the road past gate toward the Monolith. Crossed the few small streams feeding into Fairangel Creek below the monolith then connected tundra swaths through the boulders up to these east facing walls that are (on map) north of Fairangel Creek, south of The Monlith, and below the "Talkeetna Mine."
