Description 

Rather small wall with only three routes on it. The main feature of this wall is the long and exposed knife like arete which hosts 'Trail of Tears'. Another great climb is the super relentless 'Bare-Fisted Grizzly Killer'.

Getting There 

About a 15 min hike to get to this wall. Located just before the Purgatory wall.

Lost phone somewhere at the base of this wall. If you've found it, pls email mariannalynn11@yahoo.com. Fun climbs distracted us from managing our less necessary gear.
