(02) Slab Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Photo-topo of the Slab Wall, including all known r...
A long, appropriately slabby wall left (west) of the Swallow Wall and the Inclined Boulder. The rock tends to be sandy and sloped, with less of the bulletproof varnish found in other parts of the Original Side. This wall gets nearly all-day sun, making it nice in the winter, but very hot in the summer.
From the parking lot, walk along the graveled road, cross the arroyo on the bridge, and then head for the Inclined Boulder. The Slab Wall is to the left of, and partially behind, this boulder.

A neat, recommended trad climb. Start INSIDE the obvious cave at ground level, jam out the crack in the ceiling, pull out onto the varnished face above on bomber handjams, and jam up the crack to easier terrain above. The rock is good, especially at the bottom, and takes great pro. Recommended, and good practice for learning to trust jams! ...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
