Description Suggest change

This is a nice wall with some long sport and trad routes. Several moderate trad lines are worth doing as well as some harder sport routes.

Getting There Suggest change

Halfway between the dam and the Falls Wall and the East Rim, the quickest approach is via the Creek Bottom Trail. Cross the creek above the falls, then head up the hill to the South. This is the last major section of rock before the canyon point, East of the dam.
