Description

This area, aka the Training Wall, or Babies Wall, is the place to go for short, hard, bouldery routes. There are also a handful of moderates on either side of the super steep wall. There's a gully on the right (E) side of the wall offering 3 longish moderates, all good warmups. The route on the left side of this gully is one of the only 5.10s at the Tower that receives early morning sun, so makes for an excellent Warmup.

Location

This wall is right (E) of the tower itself. To approach, park below the tower, and head up and right along the NM CRAG-constructed trail. Just above the first switchback the trail splits. Head right. Continue up and rightwards for 100 feet to the wall. The hard routes are all on the super steep wall at trail's end. The moderates can be found on either side of the steep wall.
