South facing wall with a series of 40-50 foot routes. Quality of rock tends to be good here and routes range from easy 5.6 to difficult 5.12.

Getting There

See From the turn off highway 60, drive the dirt road for .5 miles to the main parking area (with restroom) on the left. Don't stop here, though. Continue another mile or so on the dirt road to a small pullout/parking area for Major Wall, Pocket Change Wall and Alcohol Wall. Park and walk the short distance to the visible Major Wall on the east side (left side) of the road.

Working backwards from 09) Pimp Daddy, the routes are...
08) Pimpin' anin't Easy 5.14b or c
07) Not sure of the name, Supposed to be 5.13, Timmy route
06) Not sure of the name, Supposed to be 5.12b but the start seemed more V8ish to 5.12 climbing, Timmy route
05) Not sure of the name, 5.11+
04?) There may actually be another route in here, but the one that starts on a crack/ramp that angles up and left 5.11- or + depending on which way you go. Jan 10, 2010
