Description 

Hospital Rock "Main Wall" is the largest visible formation, north of the Hospital Rock parking lot.

Getting There 

This wall can best be reached by parking at the turnoff about a half mile further up the highway from Hospital Rock and trudging directly up the hill. Or, buschwack from the parking lot. Appropriate attire is highly recommended, or you'll be spending half your day picking stickers off.
