Description Suggest change

This is the awesome overhanging orange and golden wall that sits above and right of the snag buttress.

Getting There Suggest change

You can access by climbing to the top of the Snag Buttress, then up and right from there. You can also hike down from the top. Start hiking down as for Powerline Wall, but before you hit the power lines, head straight downhill. Follow a trail left through the woods and angle down grassy ledges to a big flat area with a 2 bolt anchor.
