Same general area as orange wall, but roughly 1/4 mile to the south. It is a south facing, large dome shaped wall with a prominent right facing overhang in the center. It generally has very little traffic and is composed of slightly more competent rock then Orange wall.

Getting There 

Same approach notes as Orange wall, only the hiking route takes you further south and will add the difficulty of traversing along the talus shoreline.

Climbing Season

For the Banks Lake / Northrup Canyon area.

Has anyone climbed "Anonymous Heroes" on the Post Modern Wall? I tried it last weekend and felt like I was off route in some 5.10 terrain on the 1st pitch. But after looking at the "Rock Climbs of Central WA" guidebook again afterwords it appears that maybe I wasn't off route?? It just seemed like you had to traverse left 20+ feet across a steep unprotected slab after passing a couple of really old rusty bolts with an old piece of webbing attached to them. Would love to hear another person's experience on this route.
