This is the first wall encountered as you approach from the parking lot. Seperated from the Desert Shield Area by a steep vegetated gully. The routes here are generally steep and juggy down low and thin and slightly less than vertical higher up. Easy to hit this wall on the way in or way out with the approach being about 3 minutes.

Getting There 

Hike up the herd path for 3 minutes. Take the first right hand spur. The wall is visible from the main path. Look for three bolt lines to the left of a nasty, wet chimney.

Climbing Season

For the Shelving Rock area.

Weather station 8.1 miles from here
