Main wall is an impressive section of rock. The wall is the first significant piece of rock encountered from the car, and offers some great moderate climbs on steep, but not too steep rock.

Getting There 

From the parking lot on the B6349, walk towards the first cliff you see, and you'll be at Main Wall.
