Description Suggest change

Large wall just right of the Cheeks.

Getting There Suggest change

The most direct way is via the trail to Duck Wall. To reach Duck, see the Duck Wall page. From Duck wall continue up the gully, which has water running down it most of the year.

You can also approach via the Cheeks. Just continue along the trail that goes along the base of the lower Cheeks.  This takes you to the top of R.O.U.S., so you would have to rappel that to get to the right half of the wall.

The third way is from the top of Lookout Point. Go back and left (southwest) until you hit the Collegium, then skirt the base of the wall going towards the Cheeks. Be careful at the point where the top of Duck Wall is very close to this upper band of rock. You will cross under the Beyond, and then hit the Diamond.
