BETA PHOTO: Elixir Wall Overview
This Southeast facing wall is located ~150m left of 4:20 Wall. Look for the triangular roof on the left side of the wall and the orange “heart shaped” headwall in the center of the wall. This wall sits at 9000’ and gets sun until mid-afternoon. This area is a great hang with stellar views of Broken Tooth. Prime season is early spring to late fall.
As of August 2016, all bolts and hangers are stainless steel.
Approach as for 4:20 Wall. Park 0.8 mile up from Gong Show parking at a pull out. From the parking, walk to the creek and go right along obvious trail beside creek. Follow trail for ~150 meters/ 90 seconds to a tree that spans the creek. If you cannot avoid the temptation to cross the creek early, you will bushwhack. After crossing at the tree, the trail turns right thru the trees. Once you break out of the trees, you are right below Elixir Wall. Stay right and follow cairns and trail up hillside to the right of large talus field. Landmarks include The Cauldron Roof and the orange face of Elixir Wall. Allow 10-15 minutes.

Wow! I am so impressed with the extensive work that was done to stabilize the base and make for easy belay platforms on the sloping face. We only got to three routes on our first visit but will return. Thanks!
