The New Wave Wall is one of the many high quality sport cliffs at Windy point. It is different however in its consistently gently overhanging nature and an abundance of super high quality 5.12 climbs. The wall faces northwest and always has shade in the mornings. All older bolts and pins have been replaced with new bolts. All the routes demand stamina and strong fingers.
To reach New Wave Wall, park at the Windy Point Vista lot or at a pullout at mile 14.3 on the south side of the road. Head down the slope on the south side of the road toward the Hunchback (it is the tower with the kickass arete that is easily visible from the road). Before you get to the Hunchback, turn left and walk under the Wind Wall (the large wavey wall). When you near the end of the Wind Wall trend right and down the slope until you can scramble up to the base of the New Wall. It is recognizable by its gently overhanging face peppered with bolts. The approach should take 5 minutes. Alternate approaches are possible if you parked lower on the road and don't mind scrambling.

Follows the crack but New Wave DIRECT breaks a bit right when the crack jogs left.New Wave (original) used to follow the crack all the way to the ledge as a gear route with 2 or 3 pieces of fixed pro. The awesomeness of the line was enhanced by the fact that it was the ONLY route on the wall at that time....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
