The wall is located toward the southern end of the mountain, roughly above Construction job and south. In fact, most folks in the know actually approach the routes below this way as well, saving a lot of time on the standard gully descent and hike along the base. If you do this, the upper wall is even more convenient to climb on the way out at the end of the day.
