Description 

This small, steep wall is home to 4 good sport routes in the 11a to 12a range. As it is south-facing and somewhat protected from the wind, it is generally one of the warmer walls on Devil's Head.

Getting There 

From Wipeyur Buttress, hike about 5 minutes up the drainage to the north. When the trail fades, scramble up to the right a bit and then back left to the obvious, overhung orange wall with a ledge in the middle.

Make some interesting moves up the diagonal crack and geode hueco to a sit down rest. Follow some more diagonal cracks up to some face moves at the top. This one is a little more sustained and hard to read than its neighbor to the left. The clipping jugs are good but felt small when I got to them.
