This is the large wall immediately left of Ribbon Falls Amphitheater. It gets sun from morning through the sunset, and during the early season gets spray from the falls. Never crowded, splitter and great views.
[To get there], park in the pullout on the right with the large tree in the middle of the lot roughly .5 miles west of EL Cap parking, directly under the falls. Take the logging road up and follow it as it winds around until a long straight away (uphill) is seen, look right and pick up the climbers trail where a 3 foot cairn comes into view on the right of the road. Stay more or less on the left of the drainage, the trail is well marked, but steep. Allow 1 hour for approach, and you can filter water right at the base a few hundred feet right of the routes.

After the old road turns sharply left and starts the long straight away heading west, the climbers trail begins about 150 feet up on the right after a boulder. There is an oak tree that fell next to the boulder, and the spot usually has a cairn.
Almost all the way up to the amphitheater, the trail splits, west trail heading to Gold Wall and east trail heading to amphitheater. This split is between a dead cedar tree (burned base with lime green moss) and a car-sized boulder. There is currently a finger shaped rock, two ft tall, at the split.
Please help protect the area by staying on the established trail.
