Morrell's Wall lies in between the Sven Slab area and Gardener's Wall. It's fairly up on the side of the slope and the approach is a bit of a grunt. It seems to have fallen somewhat out of favor over the last few years, probably because of the access issues due to Arizona being up for sale to the highest bidder. There are some good routes up there that are worth the hike.
If you drive in as for Gardeners Wall, you will see a faint track on the left before you get to that turnoff. This can be followed south to the Morrell's Wall. I'm not sure about the legality of this drive-in, so you're on your own.

First I've got to say I only climbed the first 80' or so, I belayed and ended up rapping off from under the roof. This thing is action-packed. The first 35' or so is a tenuous seam that is quite delicate and takes thin gear. This is listed as 5.9 in the book, harder in my opinion. Gain a ledge, clip an old bolt, continue up into a slanting hand crack. Have fun switching from jams to lieback when it opens up. I belayed under the roof, but the route continues up past the roof, through another seam...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
