This is a great multi-pitch route that is very safe and very fun. The biggest dangers come from falling rocks from climbers above. The crux of the route is on the first pitch and seems more committing than that hard but definitely goes at pumpy 10+. The remaining 6 pitches are all just as much fun. The traverse pitch (four or five I think) is a blast and also well protected for both climbers. The final pitch should not be missed either.Bring the helmet and be careful of the climbers below. ...[more] Browse More Classics in International

Some of the best single pitch routes are here. It is generally where the sun falls first, so in cold weather this is your best bet. In the summer heat, however, you might not last so long.
After hiking down the road into the Potrero and past the tin pavillion, you'll pass a cattle gate and enter the center of the ring of mountains. To your left across the dry creek is a buttress going uphill. The lower part of the wall is Mota Wall.

For single pitch routes in the 5.10-.11 range - this is it. Be careful here as there are several multipitch routes that climb over the lower wall. Wear your helmets as I have seen more than few rocks come down by unseen climbers above here. Be especially aware when people are on Snot Girlz.
