The Bud Wall is a nice blue streaked wall that is home to a fun collection of warmups and moderates for the area with most routes clocking in at the 5.10 level.

Getting There 

From the meadow, follow the climbers trail that leads to the base of the Lower Replica (the lowest most obvious 130ft triangular cliff). Follow the trail up and right as it parallels the cliff eventually leading to an obvious small scree field that separates the Lower and Upper Replica. Cross the scree field and follow the trail past the Upper Replica eventually coming to another short scree field. Continue following the trail up the hill and to the left, the first route you'll run into is the long, Boy Scout Hand Grenade. The rest of the routes are off of a small ledge with a few trees on it about 100ft further up the hill.
