This slightly overhanging face contains some of the hardest routes at Crescent Rocks. It also contains the best 5.9 (Crescent Crack) at the crag. Close tree proximity make this a great spot for top roping, if you set up correctly you can climb more than one route without moving the anchors.

Getting There 

Where the AT meets the cliff face, make a right and walk scramble down the trail at the edge of the cliff. This will take you directly to the base of the Washington Wall.

If you make the right and end up on the white blaze you need to turn around.
