Rather small wall with only three routes on it. The main feature of this wall is the long and exposed knife like arete which hosts 'Trail of Tears'. Another great climb is the super relentless 'Bare-Fisted Grizzly Killer'.
About a 15 min hike to get to this wall. Located just before the Purgatory wall.

This route is a long, slightly overhung line with killer moves and a battle of the bulge that only has one good rest before the final push into enemy territory and the anchors. Do this route!
