Description 

West facing. Some solid rock with various features. There are routes that are less-than-vertical and there are routes that are vertical and overhanging. The two pillars on the right top of the wall are overhanging, the left most has a nice, thin, crack up the middle.

This wall averages 50ft in height and is roughly 120ft long/wide.

Getting There 

From the parking lot (upper most lot at Rock One Area) head south toward Brown Rocks. Once at Brown Rocks head farther south still angling west (towards the forest floor) and walking down through the boulder field. The wall is the next major formation after Brown Rocks. The State Forest boundary ends just South of Exploration Wall.

This area is setup PERFECTLY for `practicing` multi pitch. If following the way some of this wall is set up naturally it breaks down into 3 natural pitches. Create your own multi pitch climbs and `practice` your anchor building and rope management skills here.

This is a non-serious (non-developed) rock wall so have some fun!
