Getting There 

From the welcome sign, follow the wide right-hand trail downhill toward the reservoir. Follow the path left around the fence to the other side. Follow the path past the Lower Climbs on your left, along the reservoir to your right. Follow a side trail along the edge of reservoir, and take it through the woods to the north. You'll reach a wooden sign with a weathered topo of the Giant Wall. Just past it you'll find the real deal.

Belayers want helmets and quick feet! LOTS of loose rock
