BETA PHOTO: Left side of Yakov Wall
A Northeast facing wall that was one of the sites of the Phoenix bouldering contest. Because of this, it features severe sandbag ratings in an attempt to apparently impress visiting contestants. Most routes weigh in with 4 or 5 bolts in length and feature very rough rock.
Follow the Magma Mine road and park at the pullout immediately after the cattleguard. The wall is visible just to the northeast on the westside of the wash. The approach takes at most 5 minutes following cairns down to the wash and up the other side.
