Walls of Jericho
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
In Upper Cathedral Valley, along east-west cliff complex somewhat like a peninsula extending from Hartnet Plateau parallels the road. It was first called Wall Street for the supposed resemblance to the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Later, some began using Walls of Jericho in reference to visible crumbling. Regardless, it is one of the most impressive formations in Cathedral Valley.
These walls rise over 400' from their base. The highest peaks of Cathedral Valley rise around 500'.
