Just a short hike north of the road gets you to the base of this wall. This is at the far right end of Vagmarken.

Getting There 

Park on the side of the road parallel and close to the right end of Vagmarken and hike northeast. You'll hit The Llama first but will be able to see The Goat up and left above the boulder field.
