Description

Despite being so large, on the order of size of any crag around other than Eldo's Redgarden Wall, its distance from the trail head prevents it from being popular at all. It is scarcely known or spoke of.

Even in guidebooks the details for this huge, west-facing wall are sparse.

Unfortunately, the crag, while 400' tall and 1/2 mile wide, is broken by a rotten roof at mid-height for a majority of its width, a choss band which gates access to the splitter cracks above.

Still, it holds at least 4 olds routes, as evidenced by report and/or fixed pins (though details are sparse), and at least as many new ones, with potential for several more.
The rock faces predominantly West by Southwest and gets sun from late morning until late evening.

Getting There

Hike up Shadow Canyon Trail until well past the Devil's thumb, keeping an eye up and to the East. Eventually a massive red and tan wall will appear, Once directly below it's Northern end, hike 300-400 meters up talus to it's base.
Approach time is ~1h20m at a reasonable and steady pace.
