About The Ripplemark Wall:

The Ripplemark Wall is located on the southern group of crags at North Lake. The three established routes on the Ripplemark are about 40 ft. tall and only require a handful of QDs. To reach the Ripplemark Wall, follow the ridge south from the main North Lake crag (AKA the Obvious Wall) for about 10 minutes until the southern crags are reached. Continue south on the western side of the rock (passing the Truckstop routes) for several hundered yards until the sothern tip of the crag is reached. Circle around the end of the rock and head back north on the eastern side on a faint path through scrub oak. In a few hunded feet the greyish wall with two bolt lines will appear on the left. One can also head straight for the crag from the access road/parking area on a faint trail that heads up the hill to the east about 20 yards past the cattle guard. When the trail reaches the rock after about 10 min., head right (south) and join the approach described above.
