Upper Wall is a large arete with tall, challenging routes on both sides. The area around the base is small and steep without much flat terrain, so multiple parties and excess gear can be tight. Definitely stick clip all first bolts, as most starts are a little dicey and landings are bad.

Getting There 

The Upper Wall is easily seen through the woods between Tang and The Fin just a little higher above the trail. Walk west, past The Tang Area and turn right uphill. Follow a trail that goes up slightly exposed boulders to the wall.
