Description

This is probably the crown jewel of The Valley of Shaddai. Pictures don't do this formation justice; it's quite spectacular when approached.

Getting There

From the bottom of the gully (Death Gully), head south on a vague trail, crossing the creek (dry in the summer) several times. After ten or fifteen minutes this boilerplate wall should come into view on the right.
