Directions to Doorish Wall

This wall is in property owned by USFS. Be respectful.
Park in the same area as for Wall of Denial and Eagle Point Buttress. Follow the initial approach directions for Eagle Point Buttress but after about a half-mile of hiking along the river and just after crossing the tributary near the large flat campsite, hike uphill to the left and cross back over the tributary to locate a trail. Follow this trail up to the main wall of Doorish Wall which has a large detached pinnacle on the right side. To reach the minor wall of Doorish Wall where Laura and George's Most Excellent Climbing Adventure is located, bushwhack from Maltese Falcon back towards the parking area staying high on the ridge and crossing a stream along the way.
