This shady, north-facing wall faces into the valley containing Gunsmoke and is easily identified by a mitten shaped block in the middle of the crag. There are about half a dozen routes here from 5.5 to 5.11 with almost all of them being 5.9 and easier.

Getting There 

Approach as for Gunsmoke but break left on the trail heading west to the petroglyphs.
