A triple entendre, the Middle Ages wall lies in the center of the North Side. About a dozen documented routes exist here, and are all very good. The Green Knight features splitter finger crack jamming, while Book of Wasps takes you on a legendary journey at the edge of the wall.

Getting There 

When viewed from the South, one identifying landmark is the furthest west dark brown and black stains between Bertilak and Green Knight. On the rim, near the furthest west end of the fallen tree is roughly the top of the routes Book of Wasps and Edge of an Age. One tall and currently leaning dead tree is near this end as well. See picture topos for these landmarks.

As you would walk the length of the wall near the edge, many shorter trees and shrubs exist, until you get to more of a clearing which marks the other end of this wall.

This stellar line tackles thin and steep terrain with some of the best rock on the north side. Beginning on large broken ledge, stem past 00c3 splitter into a bouldery 10+ gymnastics trick. Bust right after a few more easy moves to find gear. Gain the ledge to the right below the splitter corner. (Here is where the fun really starts) Jam the finger and tips crack past a distinctly thin and bouldery sequence in the steepest section of the crack.
