Description 

This stunning, long wall is hard to miss, and loaded with classic moderate problems. While clearing the top of debris a few years back I found an old rusted rail road spike.

Turns out in 1887 a rail line was constructed to connect Flagstaff to The Mormon Mountain area for logging purposes. Very few remnants remain. I left the spike on top of a boulder on the cliff top, though it has sadly disappeared.

Aside from the landings, this a moderate boulder's dream. Good spotting, or better climbing recommended. Also the grades are give or take, and would appreciate feedback on what seems accurate.
