Shaded area by the river approximately 200 feet right of the Abominable Boulder. The area is somewhat overgrown so only faint trails exist leading up to the wall, but you'll see the bolts shining in the sunlight.

Getting There 

After passing the kiosk and taking the main stairs down into the gorge, take a right onto the main trail heading towards the overpass. This wall is right on the main path and before you reach the Abominable Boulder. Approximately a 4 minute hike from the bottom of the steps at the main entrance.
