The "Main Wall" is the large 200' tall face topped by a huge roof, (farther right than the Western Front cliffs - more SW facing). The semi-detached column at the base of the right side is another distinctive feature. Best approached by staying on the main trail until the crag is on your left, then walk across the flat bench and hike up the boulder covered slope (directly below the column). There are some nice single pitch face climbs on the main lower face, and several longer climbs at both ends of the face. Beware of loose rocks...
