I have spent more hours at this wall than any other on Flagstaff for a plethora of wonderful reasons; its overhanging enough to climb on in a rain storm, its a great traverse, there are several good highballs, and some wonderful eliminates to train on.

Getting There 

Drive 1/2 mile past the Monkey Traverse parking and stop at a large pull out facing the First Overhang Boulder. Walk down the hill to the east and its right in front of you.
