Description 

A steep brown wall with some good rock. It has about five bolted routes including a couple of excellent 5.11's.

Routes from left to right:

Cat in a Can – 5.11b
La Vida Gatos – 5.12b
Mi Vida Loca – 5.11c
Hootenanny – 5.11c
Lazarus – 5.12b

Getting There 

Located below the overlook in Virgin Canyon, there are a couple of ways to access this wall. Perhaps the best way is to go up the stairs until they dead-end, then go downhill along the wall to your right.

Climb the thin face up to the ledge (crux) and then choose either of the two finishes (the corner or the arete). Both variations are good and are about equally difficult (~ 5.10ish)....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
