Description

This is one of the better cliffs at Escalante. It probably has the highest concentration of quality routes besides the Green Machine Wall. There are several plaques at the base of the routes, but much information is scattered. Many would prefer it stay this way....

Getting There

Drive six miles from the Cabin Wall. The canyon starts to open up on the right side.

There are several faint trails heading up to different parts of the cliff. There is parking on the opposite side of the road. From here, follow the most distinct trail up a ridge.
