Pino Wall and Jawbone stand relatively isolated at the southern reaches of the main Sandia Mountains Crest. Roughly, they are south of the upper tram terminal, north of Pino Canyon, and just to the west of the crest ridge.
If approaching from the main crest parking lot, hike south to the upper tram terminal and then continue south on the crest trail. A little before the first major switchback that turns east away from the ridge, the trail makes an obvious close approach to the top of the ridge. From here there is one approach choice for Jawbone and at least two for Pino Wall.
