This interesting pile of rocks was for some reason passed over by other FA'ers. Myself and a handful of other people had a great time cleaning up this pile and putting up a few interesting routes. Don't expect to be impressed but if your lookin' for some quiet, wander up the gulley and you just might find it.
Hike through the west side boulderfield to its end and continue on the trail until you reach a boulder filled gulley. The wall sits at the top of this gulley about 400 yards up the mountain. The path taken to reach the wall is up to you. Enjoy-
