The Practice Wall is a good place for top-roping. It's also a good place for large groups of people (climbers and hikers alike). This is not a place to find seclusion, however, it is a good place to warm-up. The rock sees lots of climbers, so most of the loose stuff has bee removed leaving some high-quality rock. This cliff sees sun until mid-afternoon.

Getting There 

This is the easiest area to find since the trail ends right on top of it (literally). to access the bottom, follow the social trail to the right.

Watch out for falling objects. A lot of kids throwing things.
