Description 

The West End Wall is an intriguing spread of morphed columns, though only a handful of established pitches exist. From across canyon you can see a very conspicuous drainage/low spot in the top of the cliff. This low spot marks the top of Nyctophiliac.

This wall gets morning shade until midday during the summer months, an increased shade during the Fall season. 65 to 70 degree ambient temps will seem perfect.

Getting There 

From the camping area, hike west along canyon rim.

This is one of the most unique lines I have ever established on basalt. From the climbers left side of the drainage at large, half alive ponderosa, rappel past knobby horns, down 90' to excellent belay ledge, fixed belay. This route also stays in the shade until 1:30 or so in the afternoon in the dead of summer.From the deluxe ledge, tackle the slightly overhanging right facing dihedral with thuggy hand and finger pods (5.10+). Take a moment at the break before the rail traverse, and eye it w...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
