Convenience Cliff ApproachConvenience Cliff Approach

The wall can be seen above Tunnel #6 to the right as one drives DOWN canyon. Park as for Nomad's Cave and Primo Wall (first pullout on the right, just past Tunnel #6 on the way UP canyon). Walk up river a little bit until it is possible to cross to the south side of the road and walk into the trees. Go up about 30 feet to an old trail that is buttressed with stones, and follow it east (down canyon). The trail will come to a rib of rock that looks difficult to pass. Go up about 30 feet, scramble over the rib of rock, and dip back down to the trail, staying just above the steep drop to the road. Soon a dark slightly concave wall will come into view at the top of a cliff band. Walk up a steep rocky gully staying close to the cliff. The approach is not all that "convenient", but setting up a toprope on all the routes is.
