About Big Wall:

Big exposed wall, housing 8 mostly sport routes ***but note that there are a few mixed routes needing gear so scope them out. All routes here are 5.10 or above. Best to hit this wall early in the day as there is no shade. Relatively clean for new routes, but just same, a helmet is advisable.
Approach: From the main herd path out of the parking lot, hike along for 8-10 minutes, at the second cairn and at the height of land take the steady ramp up. When you hit the cliff, you will be facing the Jackass Buttress. Follow the trail to the left and go down around the boulders -resist the temptation to scramble over the boulders (bad idea).
