Description

This is the steep wall between Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall and House of Pain. Steep starts on fractured looking rock yields to less steep climbing above, in some cases on tuffas. Most all the routes are 5.12 or 5.13. Morning shade and afternoon sun as with most of Riemer's. Expect some amount of solitude at this wall as the routes are difficult and seemingly less popular than those at House of Pain and the Sex Cave.

Getting There

Walk down from Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall past the Mai Tai Wall. This is the steep wall that overhangs the trail running up to Block Party (route with fixed draws that traverses out an obvious high horizontal roof).
