Description

This is the largest cliff face at Big Rock. It faces mostly south and dries quickly. The wall also contains the highest concentration of climbs as well as some of the highest quality. Several routes here can be done as multipitch. Top access is gained by walking climbers left of the Main Wall until the gully ends. Circle back right and you will be on top of Vultures and Optical Delusion.

Getting There

You can use any of the forks from the Main Parking to get here, they are about equidistant.
