Description 

This wall is just past the far left end of the North Face.

Getting There 

The shortest approach is the North Face trail. If you aren’t familiar with the area, the best strategy may be to take the main approach trail up to Lunch Rock, then hike left along the base of the rock. From the base of the North Face, hike left. Just after you pass the last route (Northeast Farce), scramble left up a gully.

Climbing Season

For the Tahquitz Rock area.

The scramble up is on the climbers' right of the routes. It goes up a blocky gulley. We roped up for the last little section where it gets more difficult.
