Description 

This area has a few easy trad routes and about eight sport routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.11a. The routes are about 45-50ft and are made of sandstone with lots of pockets and plates.

Getting There 

Take the same trail from the Muir Valley parking lot that you would use to get to Tectonic Wall. There is a fork in the trail, with signs, where you turn right to get to Johnny's Wall, or continue left to Tectonic Wall.
