Description 

Desperate wall features a few tall moderates near Crank Cave. Typical south facing broken basalt.

These routes were developed by Dean Lords and Chuck Odette.

Getting There 

Follow directions to Crank Cave. When you get down into the gully, turn right and bushwhack around to the south-facing buttress.
A 4wd vehicle will get you right to the top of the wall.

For better directions, pick up a copy of the fantastic guidebook Sweet Spots, by Jerry Painter and Matt TeNgaio.
