This tower-like wall is the first big wall you'll come to as you approach from the trailhead towards the Monster Wall
. Two routes exist on this tower and while there is a lot of rock still, most of it is broken up by vegetated ledges so little or no new route potential exists (at least that I can see). The rock is a bit chunky down low (read: tread lightly) but gets better as you get higher.
Once you reach the river from the approach trail, hike southwest along the river for a minute or two. Cross the stream on a nice foot bridge and continue downstream on the trail. Look to your right for the first big, towering wall. That's it. The two routes are on the left side of the wall starting behind the trees.

Start up the typical UEF grainy rock through some chunkiness (tread lightly) past a couple of bolts to a good stance and big hueco for the third clip. A hard, sequential move left to get to the forth clip leads into the thin crux on good rock. A nice rest can be found on the arete before launching into bigger holds taking you past a few more bolts to the anchor. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
