Getting There 


For Petit Mal, this is the wall you look at west of Island Overlook. Access it via a gully in between the overlook and wall.

For Brown Pants, on the Island Peaks Overlook, look towards the gully that is towards the ranger station. On the other side of the gully is a brown shield-like wall. The last pitch is the chimney that ends at a juniper toward the left side of the shield wall.
