Description

Sunny most of the day. Often has local climbers. This is a good beginning wall directly near the parking area. The rock is rhyolite, and is strong but occasionally sharp. It gets very hot in the sun since it is dark red to black.

Getting There

Once you park at Box Canyon, face east and you're looking right at it. It's named after the small waterfall on the right side of the wall (which is not flowing, just stained black from water that has run down it in the past).
