Description

This is the first good wall you come to as you come down around the corner. The area is usually sunny and quite often busy because many people stop here first on their way to the Stems and Seeds Area.

Getting There

After you go through the narrow corridor/chimney part of the approach trail, just head down the trail a little further and the area is right around the corner.
