Description 

A hidden wall situated above the 268 boulders. Hidden from the sun and road noise make this wall a great summer wall. The wall hosts a couple trad and sport lines that are worth the hike.

Getting There 

Park at mile marker 268 and hike uphill for about half an hour. The 268 Wall lies about ten minutes from the Illness Bloc. The hike takes about 35 minutes which is a little less than fun, but in return for the trudge you get a rare bit of solitude and adventure climbing amongst the standard CCC mess.

L->R: 

A. The Metal, 12, 1p, 40', bolts.
B. Welfare Crack, 11, 1p, 50', gear.
