Pounder Branch wall (not sure if it goes by another name locally) is about 150' tall with varied quality sandstone. At least two established routes were found here and we put up one more during our trip here.

Getting There 

Go to the end of bolt house ridge road. Follow Lick creek north until the creek turns west (river right). Follow a wash heading up hill and north just before the river turns west.
