About halfway up the first talus portion of the main trail (steps), you'll notice this bolted wall on the North side of the canyon, below the Blindspot Buttress.

Getting There 

It can be approached either from the base of the first talus slide by crossing the creek and then maneuvering through the talus and creek, or you can walk further up the main trail (up the talus slope), until you are above the wall, before dropping in from there. I prefer the second approach.
