Has some nice 5.10 warm-ups to get on before heading over to Rad Wall
! The Route Canal is a good place if you're looking for shade.
First, find Rad Wall by going up through the corridor past Big Pine Wall
. This crag is just to the left (North) of Rad Wall. The narrow gully/corridor heading uphill between the Gnar Wall and the Rad Wall is called the Route Canal.

Blackballed is the middle route on the S face of Gnar Wall (15' left of Crest Chewel).Cruise the lower part of the climb on jugs, leading to a dilemma near the last bolt at the steepest section: do you want to go just left of the last bolt or go try going just right? Both work- probably about the same rating?...[more] Browse More Classics in NM

Climbers beware. We ran into a beautiful green rattlesnake at the bottom of Blackballed ,after an ascent and hanging out while observing the sound of a soft rattle that resembled the sound of a cicada. It ventured out from under the rocks at the bottom of the climb and started ascending the corridor between Rad Wall and Gnar Wall. If you bring children to this crag just be aware. This is rattlesnake season in Northern New Mexico, so keep your eyes peeled and climb safely. They most likely are all around this crag at the right place at the right times. Be warned and bring your camera.
