Beautiful tall wall in a holler, with 2 13s and 2 projects for now.

Getting There 

Between the Stadium and Ivory Tower. Hike towards Inner Sanctum and the Stadium. Just after a bridge, when the trail heads uphill and left towards the Stadium, take the new trail to cross the creek and head up a staircase. Follow this trail over to Ivory Tower on your right and keep going to the back of the holler to a 100 foot wall.

We walked through this area over the weekend, it is an impressive wall. Would be cool to see some more info on what has been set here.
