Oblivion Wall is a short wall (aka Shortcake Wall) just to the left of Doctor Seuss and Prototype Walls. It is home to five moderate routes (5.7 to 5.10a) with two to three bolts each and chain anchors.

Getting There 

To reach the Oblivion Wall, take the access trail down and left across the stream as for Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall. When you reach the Dr. Seuss / Prototype Wall area, follow the base of the wall back to the left. Oblivion Wall is right on the corner, down from the equally obscure Dark Side Wall. It is hidden from view by some large boulders.

Last week I found a stick clip at the base of Oblivion Wall. I took it for safekeeping. If you think it might be yours, PM me a description and if it matches, I'll be glad to arrange returning it.
