Description

A short wall with several great thin cracks. One can easily set up topropes, or can lead.

Getting There

Hike the Upper Town Wall (UTW) trail.  Just before you reach the base of the UTW, take the trail to your right towards the Black Sea and Cheeks.  This trail takes you over the top of the cliff, which you will not see, but look for a faint trail that turns right and goes down between two cliffs. At the base, go right to the base of the routes. (If you instead go left at the base, you will go past Black Planet and other routes of the Lower Cheeks.)

 You can also approach Pressure Drop wall via talus from climbers left of the route, but this is loose and not well travelled.
