Description

This area is popular because it has a host of moderates. To locate the Panty Wall look for the reddish wall with a large swath of varnish in the shape of black panties. The pine tree that used to be a landmark is no longer there.

All the routes on the Panty Wall are split between three separate walls. The first four climbs are on the separate formation that is uphill and to the left. The next routes are on the main wall and continue out the ramp to the right. The next three routes are on a blocky wall just past the last route.

Getting There

To get to the Panty Wall, follow the trail down to the rock outcropping and then turn left (west) and follow the trail down across the wash and up a hill. When you reach the top of the hill continue to follow the trail until you can drop into the wash and climb the slickrock slabs up to the wall. You'll pass a wag-bag kiosk and the Hamlet on the left.
