This wall is actually part of The Fortress and can be found on the eastern end of the formation between the Winter Prime and Red Pillar walls.

Getting There 

The current, most obvious trail ascends roughly in the middle of The Fortress; near the top, a trail should split right and lead you toward the eastern half from which you can gain access to the numerous walls.

Good rests come every so often, however, and the route is well-protected with gear. I found some of the rock up high to be a little dirty and exfoliating. Crux is half-way to the top and airy/overhanging....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
