A fair ways past the Cwm Laude Wall, past the broken columnar boulder field, is the Hobel Wall. Named by Paul Rauss as a dedication to the late Mike Hobel. More information under the route "Ratrastard" comments.

This wall is more characteristic to Paradise Forks and currently only has a couple of documented routes, though apparently all have been climbed by Rauss in the 90s.

Getting There 

Currently the furthest of the walls on the North Side. Walk past the Cwm Laude wall, and will be pretty obvious. Look for a series of dark orange columns leaning towards the grey pillars in the center of the wall.

Climbing Season

For the Volunteer Canyon area.
