The long slabby wall just left of the Schoolroom goes by two different names in the Wasatch Guide, but has very distinct separations. The lower section is called Kermit's Wall. These walls are connected together, separated by a distinct dihedral, and hold many fine routes. Nice cracks split the face making it a good destination. Kermit's Wall has some quality bolted routes as well as some good thin cracks.

Getting There 

Probably the easiest approach is to first go up to the Schoolroom area. To get there, park 1.25 miles up the canyon, then follow the trail just downhill from the chain link fence. Take the left fork which heads west, and eventually crosses into a field of boulders. Climb up the boulders to the base of the Schoolroom. Then traverse left and up past here, following the climber's trail which is the descent route for the Schoolroom. This eventually gets to a big formation on the left, across from the gully. Look for a very thin seam cleaving a low angle slab as a landmark (The Green A). To get to the Kermit's Wall, follow the base of the rock downhill.

Paranoia Streak 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b Utah : Wasatch Range : ... : Kermits Wall
On the left side of the Kermit's Wall area is a long, thin water streak. The route follows the lower part of this streak, shifts right, then crosses back left to exit via a crack under a large block. (The route that continues directly up the streak is Koyaanisqaatsi, a .12c balance-fest which I have yet to contemplate.)Bring both your edging shoes and your lead head, as the second clip is serious.Aesthetic, stimulating, and fun to the finish!
