Description

Good winter area, out of the wind and in the sun most of the day, down below the Turtle Rock area. Short wall (~35') with about a dozen routes recently developed by Johnny Arms. Route names mostly undetermined at present.

NOTE: Many of the routes have only one open shut for an anchor, so if you plan on top-roping, it's a good idea to bring necessary gear (cams, hexes, etc.) to set up a redundant anchor instead of toproping off only one shut.

Getting There

Take the trail to the end of the Sun Wall, past Misty and Knob Wall. Look for a fairly obvious trail down to the right; take this trail down about 50 yards to the New Wall (a right fork in this trail leads to the Hole).
