Description

This is the long wall on the other side of Frenchman Coulee across from the Sunshine wall.
Lots of shade makes this wall seldom visited. The area near the waterfall gets some afternoon sun and a few outcrops along the wall have small portions that face west and get some sun.
This makes it a good adventure for a hot day.
This wall is well documented in the Frenchman Coulee book, but because nobody goes here it is still pretty hard to figure out what is what.
The wall has pockets of stellar splitter cracks divided by long stretches of choss.

The wall is divided into six zones, each named from left to right or east to west facing the wall:

1) EAST END
2) LESBIAN TROLL WALL
3) PINS AND NEEDLES WALL
4) NUTS AND BOLTS WALL
5) HACKY SACK WALL
6) TRAPEZE WALL

Each of these walls has a selection of awesome rock and some splitter cracks separated by really bad rock

There is a traditional crack ethic requirement at this wall, so no sport climbing.

Getting There

The best approach is from the top of Fugs waterfall where there is a ramp that leads down to the base of the wall.
Next best option is to rap in from a few rap stations along the top of the wall.
If you want to take a long flat hike from the road out at the west end of Frenchman Coulee and come up one of the scree cones that works too.
