Cakewalk Wall is a wide swath of unbroken wall slathered with huecos that sits between the Perverted Sanctuary and the Central Wall on North Mountain. The wall is approximately 250 feet high and features the easy classic, Cakewalk (5.6).

Getting There 

When walking down the road, after passing a stack of boulders that stick out nearly to the road, you will see Cakewalk Wall on your left. A climbers trail leads past an old concrete ramada pad to the base of the wall.
