Description 

Balls to the Wall is the leftmost climb on Gnar Wall.

It's hard to write good El Rito descriptions, especially for moderates. Climb the vertical cobble-y face. (Helpful?)

Fun moves, especially up high where it gets steeper.

A really enjoyable climb. Great intro to steeper, sustained routes at El Rito.
