Access Issue: New Access Difficulties Details
A new fence laced in razor wire has been erected on the far end of the dam where you used to hop over. Skirting around is a trivial matter, but I'm unsure how the message should be interpreted. There are no new signs indicating closures, and you can still hike over from Stumbling Blocks/Ghetto Wall. If anything the fence is going to have more of an effect on the hikers trying to do the loop than the climbers. On the plus side, I've never seen it so empty at this area.
A medium-sized piece of detached rock with an overhanging heuco-filled face. All the routes here are fairly advanced. The wall gets its name from the route The Drifter, which starts on the left side and traverses all the way right.
Getting There [Edit]
After you pass over the dam and scramble down the hill into the wash, head right towards the dam. Drifter wall will be the first section of rock on your right.
