The telephone poles will cross the road again and you should see a dirt pull out on the right. head straight for the cliff across brush and up a steep hillside. walk down a short section of what looks like an old dirt road towards the crags. At the far end is an arrow comprised of black stones on the round pointing to the train into the sagebrush. Follow an old and overgrown sidewalk for about 50 yards towards a small grove of deciduous trees in the distance, then break left onto the obvious dirt trail. After a ways it will turn into rock and talus. Follow the cairns up the rim of the talus and into the gully tat eventually runs under the huge blank boulder up the hill to your right. Keep going up and right until you reach a small slab where the gully forks. Follow the steep faint trail up and left to the base of the wall.
