Description 

A broad, mostly north facing wall on the right side of Citadel Canyon, just above Shortline.

Getting There 

Go past the slab which Bucky Blue is on (Rabbit Ears Slabs) and up into Citadel Canyon (to the right of the Citadel). Looking up the canyon from the bottom of the Citadel you will see a fairly large, clean wall encroaching on the canyon from the right. It is split near the middle by a vertical gully. To get to the base of it, you need to take a short side canyon. You should be able to see The Keyhole on your right as you approach the bottom of the wall.
