Description

The first of several walls that one comes upon in the Bob's area.
Excellent rock quality and climbs here.
Careful knocking rocks off the ledge, the trail is right below.
I have not visited since 2006, or 05, or 07,08????

Getting There

Starting at the Wa. State Park trailhead parking ( with concrete Toilet) parking lot which is the first right after taking a right off the east bound I-90 exit 38, start up the trail to Mt. Washington. Make sure you have a Discovery Pass, or you will get a ticket. If you do get a ticket they will reduce it by $30 if you buy an annual pass. $100 ticket less $30 annual pass.
If you have not been on the Mt. Wa. trail (like Amazonia) it is pretty hard to find. You will come out on the RR grade trail (road) and go right (West) till you come to an obvious trail going up the hill. There is a weak trail you come to first, go to the 2nd one. The Semi wall is the first one on the right, 5-10 min. from parking. The cut off left to Amazonia is next at 15 min. The Actual Cave is on the right in 20 min. About 40 min. from trailhead you will view the Bob's area.There is a right hand cut-off to Valley View West, a little further on Mt. Wa. trail the Chainsaw Wall will be above you on the right at about 50 min.
