Description 

This area is home of the classic sport climb, Toxic Hueco, 5.11d. There's also a collection of harder trad lines here as well as some stout sport routes. Nearly all of the routes are very high quality.

Getting There 

Follow the same approach as for the Tan Wall, but continue on the ATV trail after passing the path for the Tan Wall. To access the right end of the Toxic Hueco wall, take the next path on the right heading toward the cliff. This will put you at the start of I'll Buy That For a Dollar. To access the left side of this area, continue further on the ATV trail and take the next trail on the right toward the cliff. This will put you at the base of Toxic Hueco.
