Stacked with moderates this southwest-facing wall sits at the top of the gully leading to the Generation Wall and features routes with names referencing the movie "Blue Velvet". Joyride (5.7) and Hit Me (5.10b) are the best of the bunch here. The climbing here tends to be mainly vertical and technical with pockets, edges and inobvious holds which makes them seem hard for the given grade.

Getting There 

Hike up to the The Pyramid and then make a left and descend rock slabs along a gully where you will find the wall on your left; the Generation Wall lies at the bottom of the gully on the right. The approach takes 30-45 minutes from the closest parking area.
