Description

Wild Dog Wall are directly below the upper Fort Knox car park but at the bottom of the valley (two tiers down)

Approach

head down towards the twilight zone but instead of cutting back continue diagonally downhill (towards creek) to get down another tier in the cliff. once you are down next tier cut back under cliff until you reach the wall. Its a bit further than you think it will be.

Ethic inherited from Fort Knox

Fort Knox is a sport Crag. There are a few trad lines or mixed routes and theses are marked as such but in general you can have a great day with a handful of quickdraws and a rope.
