This wall is left of Upper Motherís but is part of the same cliff. The wall sits directly behind someoneís house, but it is on BLM land. The cliff is roughly 450 feet tall at its tallest point. Most of the routes are single pitch, but there are a couple of multi-pitch routes as well. Half of the routes are pure sport climbs where the other half require gear. Watch out for cactus and rockfall, I cleaned most of the really bad loose rock off the routes I put up, but you should still be cautious.
To access it, park in the WCCC parking lot at Mothers Buttress and hike the main trail to a cairn trail that splits left after you cross the creek before it starts up the steep part of the hill. Follow the cairns up to the cliff side of either the lower part of Upper Mothers or Other Mothers. I did the hike in 17 min from car to cliff with a heavy pack on.

Pitch 1: Climb up the crack in a right-facing dihedral to a two bolt anchor. The crux is low, but this stays pretty consistent 5.10 for most of the pitch. The dihedral leans right, so your feet are rarely in the crack if ever. One bolt down low but protects with gear the rest of the way.Pitch 2: Continue up the dihedral on the left to a ledge then traverse the ledge left to the corner and head up to another ledge and a two bolt anchor. The rock quality in the corner was pretty bad so I place a f...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
