Red Lizard is in the middle of the buttress at the right-center of the photo. The Cemetery wall is the huecoed south facing wall just around the corner to the left.

The first bad part of the drive, about 1/4 mile past the cattle guard. It's really only on 1 of 2 notably rough parts on the drive. It only stays like this for at most 500 feet.

Another angle. You can see where a lot of people have scraped. This is by far the roughest part of the drive.

High clearance crux of the drive, about 1 mile past the cattle guard.  <br />Also, there is a nice camping spot about 300' downstream from here.

Direct Start to UD. Surprisingly good rock and, while small, the gear is quite good.

Comments: The first pitch is easy and the 2nd is indeed a bolt ladder but of 14 or so protection bolts only 2 have hangers. The rest require rivet hangers or stoppers with a cable that can be slid down.

Comments: Just to clarify the above comment, the third rap indeed has good bolts but still has equalized tat instead of chain.

Comments: Climbed the 2nd pitch of this (5.11) and took it to the rim. I would recommend bringing a #4 and #5 (or maybe a #6 instead?) for the 10 feet of wide slot (don't worry there are some face holds, so no heinous offwidthing required) and a blue tcu for right after. Most of the 2nd pitch is quite good but it was a bit sandy when I did it. I continued to the top and belayed off a juniper in one monster pitch that included pretty easy but tiring groveling up poor rock at the rim. It w... more >>

Comments: Climbed this today and took a few forceful falls onto the rusty 1/4" bolt right above the belay, so I guess it's good, but it really should be replaced in my opinion (especially when the rest of the climb has nice half inchers). The rest of the route was very fun, painful on the fingertips though. Reminded me a lot of EBGB in josh, but thankfully not as scary.

Comments: Went here for the first time this weekend and it was awesome. A little beta on the parking/gates locking though.

The sign at the trailhead says the gates lock at 5pm (which had been changed to 7pm when we got back!). Not knowing if our car would be locked in overnight we asked a local who was about to go on a hike who said they were strict about locking the gate and that we should be out by 5.
So our day was a little shorter that originally planned, but as we were driving out around 4, we saw ... more >>

Comments: It only took 22 years but this is now equipped with a modern 2 bolt anchor (including fixed biners, so as with all climbs at the waterfall please leave them in place).
