A small wall of cracks facing east. This area is full of short hand jamming cracks, fist jams, and some dihedrals. There are also a lot of large boulders in the valley below this wall that can be bouldered while you are in the area.

Getting There 

Take the road toward Checkerboard Wall but turn right onto the power-line road. Follow this road for a ways until you see a wall to your left up high on the hill. It looks pretty small and has a bunch of obvious cracks on its left side. Park on the side of the road.
