Description 

This short wall is right at ground level and has an unmistakable "wave" breaking right at the top. Most of the climbs are relatively easy until reaching the wave.

The wall faces south but is protected from the sun until late in the day by huge wall surrounding it.

Getting There 

Near the end of the canyon, across from the tin-roofed picnic pavilion, on the left (east) side of the road.

Climbing Season

For the El Potrero Chico area.

Weather station 4.8 miles from here
