A trad and sport section of The Running Scared Wall, this micro zone has a good selection of moderate lines and ok rock. The routes here range from 40-65 feet and receive morning shade and afternoon sun.

Getting There 

The Suess Wall is located near the center of The Running Scared Wall. From the main trail, pass The School Room and High School Wall until you reach a small break in the trees, look for two large blocks separated by a recessed chimney feature. Walk to the base of the wall.
