An asymptotically exact expression for the free energy of an (001) oriented domain wall of the 3D Ising model is derived. The order-disorder transition takes place when the domain wall free energy vanishes. In the anisotropic limit, where two of the three exchange energies (e.g. $J_x$ and $J_y$ ) are small compared to the third exchange energy ( $J_z$ ), the following equation for the critical temperature is derived, $\sinh\left(\frac{2J_z}{k_BT_c}\right)\sinh\left(\frac{2(J_x+J_y)}{k_BT_c}\right)=1.$ It is shown that this expression is asymptotically exact.
