Description

A short, lichen-encrusted, northwest facing wall of pretty good quality rock offering four easy/moderate sport routes. However, the wall is steep for only a short bit at the start and backs off pretty quickly.
The wall is the northwest side of the block of rock that is the Gnar Wall and Route Canal just across the gully from Drive-By Genocide.

The loose rock has been cleaned pretty well but there's quite a bit of lichen and dirt that still needs cleaning. Suitors are encouraged to use a wire brush to clean up the routes a bit if so inclined.

Getting There

Walk east/southeast along the Walt's Wall (aka The Outsider Wall) and uphill to the "back way" to Gnar Wall and Route Canal but instead of scrambling up the narrow gully to the the Gnar Wall and Route Canal, go left, step over the huge downed pine tree and you're there.
