Description Suggest change

What the Rusty Wall lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. There are two excellent, steep cracks to climb here: O'Kelley's Crack (5.10c) on the right and Wangerbanger (5.11c) to the left.

Getting There Suggest change

From Echo Tee, hang a left and, if driving, park where the dirt road ends at a gate, which is the entrance to Keys Ranch. Walk west towards the obvious orange-colored wall. Approach time: 10 minutes.
