FALL WALL APPROACH: Fall Wall with the "clamshell" in the foreground. The best way to access the easier middle routes on the Fall Wall is to hike to the clamshell's left side, then walk to the back and hike right underneath the clamshell. The clamshell is actually a giant rock that is leaning up against the fall wall forming an arch/cave underneath. As you exit the right side of the cave, under the clamshell, you must climb up some boulders to the base of the fall wall beneath the "Coldfinger" route. It's mostly easy boulder hopping, but requires one 5.4 move up and over the last slick boulder.
