This is the largest chunk of rock in the canyon. This wall is very obvious if one takes the drive towards Gateway. In KC Baum's book of the area, the only documented route up the discontinuous 1300' face is his route Ancient Wisdom. The formations offers mostly good rock with the usual bands and streaks of poor quality rock. As mentioned in the guide, the cracks do tend to flare quite often and seam out. There is enough rock here to keep you busy for a long time.

Getting There 

It is 23.5 miles west of Divide Road. Park as for the Unaweep Seep parking. Walk further west to where the lush vegetation decreases and crossing the river is more manageable.

We originally planned to do a new route that went up the longest section of the wall where Ancient Wisdom lies, but after seeing the broken and ledgy profile of the face we opted for the steeper west side that would offer more sustained climbing at the cost of a few hundred feet.
