This massive cliff face, easily seen from the city of Albuquerque, stands just beneath the communcations towers in upper Chimney Canyon. The rock wall boasts many long, quality routes.
At the North End of the crest parking lot, locate a prominent trail that skirts just around the fence. Follow it, as it slowly winds you down toward the limestone band near the top of the crest. This prominent trail continues along the limestone band for about 10 minutes or so, than you will come upon an intersection. Go left, heading towards hilltop of aspen, this is the summit of Muralla Grande.
