The Wave is a spur of the large, high wall opening that heads north/south to the right of The Wave. You will note new large blocks to the right of The wave head. These are dropped by sax feet (that is a high dispersed sandstone block on bedrock with a crack that disappears into bedrock) and must be climbed to top out.
The Wave itself is about seventy-five feet high and 50-100 yards in width. The wall rims are very fibrous and slick. In a storm you can see the slot creating a rock/sediment enter the wall from the bottom. The Wave is very reminiscent of the Miller-Truckman arch (see description) which shares many features but is not really as large. There is always a noticeable gradient to the Wave from the north/east to the south/west. Also the side of the Wave facing Buckskin Gulch is very steep and where falling rock is likely. Protection against rock falls is extremely important. The wave is exposed to the elements for long periods.
This is an excellent place for spectating views to the west and south. The gusties to the south and west are not visible from here so you need to look carefully east beyond the Wave. The large grassy-topped apron that you seem to see when driving/hiking west is not actually visible from the Wave. It is a flat outcropping of hardpan and is an excellent rock pit. Should be fine should you choose to bottom out there. The wall surface beyond the Wave bumps up against the wall above and to the left of The Wave. These are the Coyote Buttes.
There is a trail to the left of the wall to the west. There are steep cliffs to the west on Buckskin Gulch and undoubtedly in storm conditions there will be rock falling. Consequently hikers should not climb this trail. There is a faint trail at the base of the cliffs that has been eroded by wind d2c66b5586
