This wall was first developed by Jerry Oser and Sean Rivet. There are currently several routes, two of which ascend a slab. There is also a bolted arête off by itself (you will pass it before the you arrive at the slab on the approach).

This wall is home to one of Bishop's hardest slab testpieces, The S.A.T.

UPDATE: In more recent times, Tai Devore and others have been further developing the amazing potential of this wall with the addition of a number of excellent trad and mixed routes. Go to Wilson's Eastside Sports for the latest topo of the area.

Getting There 

Walk ~ 15 minutes up-canyon past the Planetarium Wall. Scramble up a short hill of talus and scree, down into a depression, then up again. The wall will be on your left. Look for the smooth, bolted slab.
