This is a mostly east-facing wall that faces both the Claim Jumper Wall and the Gunsmoke Wall. A good variety of fun, well-protected moderates from 5.7 to 5.10c make this a popular wall.
Easily reached from the base of the Claim Jumper Wall via a short bit of trail and some scrambling, or from the Gunsmoke Wall by more of the same.
