DescriptionThis Southeast facing wall is located ~150m left of 4:20 Wall. Look for the triangular roof on the left side of the wall and the orange “heart shaped” headwall in the center of the wall. This wall sits at 9000’ and gets sun until mid-afternoon. This area is a great hang with stellar views of Broken Tooth. Prime season is early spring to late fall.
As of August 2016, all bolts and hangers are stainless steel.
Getting ThereApproach as for 4:20 Wall. Park 0.8 mile up from Gong Show parking at a pull out. From the parking, walk to the creek and go right along obvious trail beside creek. Follow trail for ~150 meters/ 90 seconds to a tree that spans the creek. If you cannot avoid the temptation to cross the creek early, you will bushwhack. After crossing at the tree, the trail turns right thru the trees. Once you break out of the trees, you are right below Elixir Wall. Stay right and follow cairns and trail up hillside to the right of large talus field. Landmarks include The Cauldron Roof and the orange face of Elixir Wall. Allow 10-15 minutes.
During periods of high spring run off, the river crossing may be submerged. If this is the case, continue up Rock Creek Road to the Pallisade Group Campground. Park in the public parking. Walk down the road past the campground. Stay right at the fork. At cabin #23, just past the stone wall, pick up a trail that parallels the creek. This trail leads directly to the trail described above. This way skips the river crossing but adds ~5-10 minutes/ ¼ mile to the approach.
