Description Suggest change

This area has some of the best climbs in the area, like Yippey-Kay-Yay and never kiss a sleeping wolf

Getting There Suggest change

To get here, park in the same place as you would to go to Big Picture Gully (by the dam), then go across damn and go right down stream. Follow the trail next to the river until you get to a some stacked rocks and there is some yellow tape on a tree (if it's still there, haven't checked lately) which will be on your left, then follow the trail until you get to the wall and the Indian Wars Wall is right and all others are left starting with Lady in Red wall, which has Yippy-Kay-Yay.
