Description 

An amazing wall with great winter sun all afternoon. Nearly all of the climbing is steep with some routes that are intensely overhanging. The rock is good quality limestone and bolted for your pleasure. At the Outrage wall you will find everything: Jugs, crimps, TUFAS, pockets, huecos, you name it. The difficulties start at mid-eleven and go into the thirteens with many open projects still remaining.

Getting There 

After walking into the canyon continue past the tin pavilion onto the dirt road, across the cattle guard with the annoying gatekeeper, and look up right past The Spires. Hike uphill on whatever trail you find (there are many) passing The Spires on their right for about 10 minutes until you get to the obvious steep, streaked wall. You really cant miss it. Its, in fact, outrageous.

This is a fantastic route - the second pitch of which climbs a wild, steep tufa system (the "tufa chandelier") and the third pitch joins with Time for Livin' for that route's crux. Although this could be viewed as an easier version of Time for Livin', the second pitch is worthy in its own right. The given ratings - and pitch count for that matter - in the current guidebooks are all a bit wonky so hopefully this will clarify:P1 (5.11d): 11 bolts. The big black tufa and jugs leads to a thin face.P...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Does anyone have info on the new multi pitch sport route 20 ft left of El Sendero Diablo? What is the grade, how high does it go, and can the anchors be used as a descent for ESD?

Thanks, Mark
