Description

A west facing wall right off the trail. It has three well protected slabby routes and is a nice alternative to the southern faces of big rock when that area is crowded. This area is climbers left of Rookie Wall on the same formation. The routes can be mossy and have pine needles so be aware of that or bring a wire brush for community service points. Please be considerate of trail users by not yard sailing your gear at the base.

Getting There

Approach for the southern routes on big rock such as Southern Comfort. Continue on the same trail for 2-3 mins or less as it leads toward Rookie Wall. The base of these routes is right at the switchback with the small retaining wall on climbers right.
