Description 

This area has the tallest wall at Powerlinez, with other worthwhile cliffs alongside.

It includes these sectors:
  • Dave's Wall
  • Three Bears
  • Tower Wall
  • Sunny Picnics

Getting There 

The Tower Wall is easily visible while driving in on Torne Valley Rd. Several ways to get there. The easiest (though not the shortest) is to start North up the dirt road for the trailhead about 1350 feet to the second intersection. Turn Left and go SouthWest about 500 feet to an intersection. Turn Right (NW) up short steep hill, then curve Left and go flat WSW another 200 feet.
