The Wall of Wow consists of a main steep buttress flanked by some nice vertical walls. The routes range from crimpy 5.11 tech-fests to burly 5.12s on the buttress.

Getting There 

The Wall of Wow is one of the first walls you encounter after heading left on the traverse trail. It is easily identified by the timbers leaning against the right side and the steep buttress.
