So much rock, so few climbs. If that doesn't get you depressed, maybe you're just too happy of a person. Down and around the corner from the Ultimate Block (which is actually part of the same rock formation) lies this beauty of a wall, that currently only hosts 2 or 3 real routes (with a few V0 contrivances on the right end double arete). If it's too much for you to take, go back to the Alien wall, or keep moving along the trail to the rest of the climbing.

Getting There 

Down and around from the Ultimate Block/Alien Wall. Still marked with orange flagging.

The big horizontal crack on the main face of this wall is now cleaned. It was really bad, now its just ok. With a little more work, it think it would go, and it would be sweet !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
