Getting ThereIf coming from the vicinity of The Ampitheatre walk west past the south face of the Thunderbird Wall to hit the wall at it's south end near the route Firing Line.
From the Motherlode Wall head south towards the Gunsmoke Wall and then south along a trail which will lead to the left side of the wall near the route Ricochet.
To get there from the northern parking area, hike the 4x4 road (3N07A) south until the wall comes into view and then take the trail that branches off near the left side of the formation - you'll hit the wall near the route Dangling Derelict.
