Description

This wall lies just left of Lookout Point (separated by a steep, brushy gully) and below the Diamond. At its base lies the Wall of Ten-thousand Insects, and to its left and slightly below lies Rattletale. The upper left side of this wall has a large, left-facing roof. The wall is steeper, on average, than Lookout Point, but generally less than vertical.

Getting There

Take the trail to Lookout Point and Private Idaho, and continue up and left to the headwall. Except in the summer, this headwall has a waterfall. Go left into the woods. Duck Wall has several lower tiers separated by treed ledges, and the lowest tier is also known as the Wall of Ten-thousand Insects. WOTI has several fun, short crack climbs. For routes on the upper tiers, follow the base of this short wall around to the left, and head up towards the Diamond gully. Several routes start close to this gully. (Alternatively, branch off left from the Lookout-Point trail to head towards Rattletale, but upon reaching the boulder field, head up towards the Diamond gully.) To reach other routes, take the trail right along a forested ledge below the cliff.
