Description

This 100' high cliff contains high-quality moderate crack climbs, difficult face and crack climbs, and several sport routes. The rock is excellent and this wall has much fewer people than the Lower Town Wall. It is surrounded by thick forest and the left side of the wall is shady at the base.

Getting There

Park in town, walk down the railroad tracks (wall-side), and midway through the bend, look on the right for a trail that goes down a little to cross a small wooden bridge. This trail goes to Private Idaho, Rattletale, Lookout Point, Duck Wall, the Diamond, as well as some popular boulders.

The trail meanders through deep forest, heading up to a crest. At this point, there are side-trails left to boulders, but the main trail goes right and remains fairly level until reaching Midnite boulder. After passing this boulder, the trail starts ascending through wooded talus. Soon thereafter is a T-junction; the trail to the left goes to Rattletale (and a way to Duck Wall & the Diamond), the trail to the right goes to Private Idaho, Hag Crag, Lookout Point, Duck Wall & the Diamond area. After a few more minutes of ascending overgrown talus, a trail takes off right (just below the 'Brad Driscoll' outcrop). This trail skirts below Private Idaho and provides access to all of the routes.
