Description

Has some nice 5.10 warm-ups to get on before heading over to Rad Wall! The Route Canal is a good place if you're looking for shade.

Getting There

First, find Rad Wall by going up through the corridor past Big Pine Wall. This crag is just to the left (North) of Rad Wall. The narrow gully/corridor heading uphill between the Gnar Wall and the Rad Wall is called the Route Canal.

FUN WALL for 5.10's in El Rito. Oct 12, 2015

Climbers beware. We ran into a beautiful green rattlesnake at the bottom of Blackballed ,after an ascent and hanging out while observing the sound of a soft rattle that resembled the sound of a cicada. It ventured out from under the rocks at the bottom of the climb and started ascending the corridor between Rad Wall and Gnar Wall. If you bring children to this crag just be aware. This is rattlesnake season in Northern New Mexico, so keep your eyes peeled and climb safely. They most likely are all around this crag at the right place at the right times. Be warned and bring your camera. Jul 28, 2009
