A nice vertical small wall on the lower ridge North of the 'Crap Traverse' where most of the lines face NW. Four distinct up lines and a short traverse can be found here (1 V2, 2 V3's a V8 and a V5 traverse with topout). The climbing on the "moderate" routes are on thin edges and laybacks or nice pockets.

Getting There 

Pocket Wall is located nearly equidistant from the North and South parking lots, in the middle of the lower ridge line approximately 50 yards North of Mighty Wall just past the 'Crap Traverse' (a gnarled pine tree with dead top and live lower branches marks the end of the traverse) and about 100-150 yards South of the Skunk Rub and Short Bus area.
