Getting There

This cliff is on the way to the "Slatanic area." You go up Rattlesnake cyn. until just below "The Bulkhead" and then head left up the gully which leads east up the mountainside. Follow the gully until you can traverse up and right onto a small plateau area. The "Polka Dot Wall" is 200' down the first gully to the west. If you are going to the "Slatanic area" traverse west past the top of the "Polka Dot Wall" and drop 100' or so down the next gully till you can traverse farther west until directly below the routes.

This was much easier to find than I thought it would be and worth the hike. A couple of hints about getting there; its pretty much right behind the bulkhead and it can be seen from the billboard area as a smooth dark wall above and slightly to the right of the bulkhead Dec 5, 2007
