Description 

This large wall is host to a number of fine routes but despite that it sees little traffic, probably because the routes tend to be hard, runout or a bit of both. Nonetheless, Grand Canyon Donkey Trail (5.10a R), Stitch in Time (5.10d), The Woodshed (5.11d) and Every Which Way but Up (5.12b R) are worthy if in the area.

Getting There 

From the Split Rock parking area follow a climber's trail southwest, aiming for a wall with a distinctive diagonal dike system clearly visible on the approach. Turn left into a bushy, rock-filled valley aiming for the right side.
