Description

This is the north-facing side of the "Second Plancha Wall" in the Virgin Canyon -- it is up and right from the "Wonder Wall".

Access issues inherited from El Potrero Chico

Most of the climbing here is in a 'State' Park, but there is no fee. There are a few campsites and rooms available just down the road (i.e. 10 minute walk) from the park entrance.

Approach

Walk up through the pools to the "Wonder Wall" then from the right end of this wall, hike up into the scree towards the obvious pillar (Yogi's Pillar).
