Description

Secluded NW facing cliff. You can actually see most of the wall from the parking area.

Getting There

Park at the end of Alvernon Way at the Finger Rock trailhead. Almost immediately take the right fork for the Pontatoc trail. After about a mile the trail forks again at a switchback— take the left fork for Pontatoc Canyon, (the right fork eventually leads up the ridge to the climb's summit.) When the trail drops back into the canyon for a crossing, leave the trail and hike up the drainage until you can access the base of the climb. Look for the huge left facing corner with trees in it. Allow at least an hour. (**Note the triangular-capped roof on the upper section (P. 5 of KRGTV) and the orange corner just below the tree on the lower section (P. 3 of KRGTV) for rap stations.)

The slope between the drainage and the base of the wall is a steep, loose, gnarly bushwhack.
