How far of a hike is this from the bridge? And where is the best place to cross the creek, I'm tryin to get to the River Wall, but the creek would have swept my azz away today. It may just be a bad time for this area due to snow melt, rain, and run-off.

After heavy rainfall crag will be very difficult to access due to deep waters. Take the time to walk to River Wall and venture down to the water, its beautiful during the spring.
