good rock, part of the same formation that makes up pond cave but around to the right. partial sun. and pretty long wall

Getting There 

when approaching pond cave if coming from main road, walk over little stone bridge to pond cave and turn right and you will see a wall with another boulder leaning into it up high on the left. It is actually part of the same cluster that forms pond cave .few good problems enjoy.

Mark, this is the wall just to the left as you approach the Pond cave. Can you change the name to the Fish and Chips wall? I think Matt's problems are new as they are very contrived. They climb well, but you really need to follow the instructions.

Also, funny that this wall gets added with two eliminates when there are 6 to 8 good non-eliminate problems on this wall. Granted all of them are V0 or V1 but there are lots of interesting holds on this wall.

Done, ..good name. I thought I remembered doing some non-contrived stuff there with Whitey harder than V1s, but who knows. It was a long time ago. If anybody has any good names for the lines here, post them up even if they are FA - Unknown.

On your left walking up, but around right from the cave (if looking from the pond), correct?

Yeah, the rock is like the right side of the same rock formation as the pond cave (if looking into the cave from the pond). Has anyone climbed the high overhanging face with the ledge fall potential right when you walk up to the pond cave?

Probably, if it is not too hard. I would have to go back and look at it to remind me. At one time I was contemplating getting some house moving jacks and toppling that big block off the ledge and into the water to open up the big cave behind it. It seemed like an excessive amount of work carrying in the jacks though and I am sure the park people wouldn't have liked me very much.

That big block has a problem on it anyway, doesn't it? Sink Or Swim is the name that comes to mind but I very well may be making that up. V2 or so, maybe V3 for the interesting fall potential, since it climbs straight up over the water/summertime snake pit.

Sink or Swim is the very cool arete (the right side of the wall facing the pond) left of where I was refering. The overhang I'm referring to is right of Sink or Swim...
