Getting There

There are two ways to reach Discovery Wall when approaching from the Eastern District parking lot. 1. Go up the trail and at the first fork go right until you hit the very right end of Discovery Wall at a large roof feature (The Roof). 2. Follow the trail to the left veering right at the "Bat" Gate Closure for the caves trail. When it appears you will start switchbacking you have two options. Most hikers end up walking to the right because they are unfamiliar with the trail that otherwise heads sharp back left to the Reservoir. To hit the middle of the wall go right. To hit the left end of the wall go sharp back left toward the Grotto feature. After 20 feet head back right along the wall squeezing between a rock and the wall being careful to avoid poison oak near the base.
