Description Suggest change

A large, super aesthetic boulder that sits behind the Wake Up Wall. The front side faces south and houses easier slab routes, while the north side has high quality, technical routes on a lovely chocolate varnished face. This crag's close proximity to Wake Up Wall (about two minutes) makes it a good place to warm up, cool down, or mix in a different style of climbing than the other western SQ walls.
All of the route ratings are based on the opinions of the very few that have attempted them. They may change as I get more feedback.

Getting There Suggest change

Approach as for Wake Up Wall. Follow the wash behind up to a small notch, and then down into a wide wash. Turn slightly right and pass a very short route on your left (Up and Down, 5.10c). Continue up a little slab, and The Walrus sits directly to your right. 15 minutes from the parking lot.
