Description

This is a mostly east-facing wall that faces both the Claim Jumper Wall and the Gunsmoke Wall. A good variety of fun, well-protected moderates from 5.7 to 5.10c make this a popular wall.

The backside of this wall is actually the Pistol Whipped Wall, which is easily reached by heading along the south face of the Thunderbird Wall and then turning the corner; having done this you should come out near the base of Firing Line.
