Immediately upon entering the Rock Maze, this wall extends twenty or thirty feet with a horizontal crack eight or nine feet up the whole way. The entire wall is about fifteen to twenty feet tall. The rock has a "golden" color and is very smooth rock.

Getting There 

At the parking area, walk along the path until you run into the first of the larger boulders in the South Central Area. Walk to the right and eventually you will run into a corridor, of sorts, with a large wall on the left handside and a small, rounded boulder on the right handside. The color of the wall gives its presence away. Look for the long horizontal crack.
