Wall is very close to the parking lot (technically it is directly BELOW the parking lot). Don't cross the creek after the rock stairs and take the river access trail to the left. Keep a sharp eye out for anchors. Once you spot them, find the "clearest" area and that's the trail. Clearly not a popular wall, not sure why though. Trail goes a bit diagonal to the right (looking at the wall). Nice and shady until well past midday. "Skinny tree" in the original guide book isn't so skinny anymore.

Wall can be top-roped after first lead climb by moving rope along the top ledge. Oct 9, 2017
