BETA PHOTO: Headwall routes.

Description 

A big, tall and impressive wall with many steep routes. It's slowly becoming a destination area on its own and certainly worth a gander for UEF visitors. Some sections down low include dubious rock between decent holds and rock.


Getting There 

This wall is upstream of where the approach trail enters the valley about 200 yards upstream from Brier Patch (Creek Wall). Cross the creek on the bridge/downed tree near the Brier Patch (Creek Wall) and head upstream staying high on a bench above the creek when necessary. This wall is the first huge wall you'll come to. It faces southeast so it sees sun until mid to late afternoon.

Featured Route For The Amphitheater
Clinging to the cool, black tufa-like rail on the upper section. June 2010.

Supramanya 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : The Amphitheater
Supramanya strikes hard right from the start with a sharp but positive mono boulder problem past the first bolt. After that, itís more moderate climbing as the venom sinks in to a rest on a gigantic ledge after the [oddly placed] fifth bolt. From the ledge, clip the bolt off to the left but move well to the right to find good holds to get established on the upper headwall. Snake your way back left towards the arete on steepening but juggy terrain to grab the killer black tufa-like handrail. S...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
