Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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.
