Description

This area has very little shade, but almost always has a nice breeze blowing up from around the corner. It's location gives it a secluded feeling and has some great views of San Pedro Valley. The rock is granite and the quality is mostly excellent. The wall faces southeast and is probably best climbed spring, summer and fall!

Getting There

Park at the pullout for Ridgeline. Head up trail for approx. 12 min. As the the trail curves right before Ridgeline you will see a cairn next to a 12Ft. branch. Here you will follow a faint trail and cairns as the trail gradually contours down to the front of the wall. Approach time approx. 25 Min.

The approach was pretty heavily overgrown on our visit. Spent a good amount of time searching for something resembling a trail to this crag and bushwhacked around a fair bit. We found some cairns in the bushes, but they didn't seem to indicate any path that was easy or direct. Our party finally concluded the only way in was to forge through thickets and get on hands and knees to navigate around the base of the rocks. I'd say the best approach is to go to Ridgeline, and switchback down the rockfall line below it, staying near the walls to your left. Eventually the walls will curve left. Force your way through the brush at the base, staying in touch with the rock, at this point for about 100 feet. Eventually you'll find a worn belay area and some bolts on a slanted pillar. Great climbing area for beginning trad leaders, great rock and features. Apr 25, 2016

never did find a contour trail, which would've been nice. It was quicker than looking to just go to the middle of Ridgeline Wall, duck under the logs and go down the eroded gully. Curl left when you see the bolts. Feb 7, 2014

Jimbo,
Charlie told me he has been down below this area and had spotted some "newer modern bolts." You know as well as I all those rocks we see from above are the top sides of some cliffs that most likely hold some real "Gems." I have not looked at the area yet, so feel free to take a look. I think we are pretty safe talking about the area on this site, because I don't think anyone is crazy enough to venture down below there? If I remember correctly, Charlie said it was a pretty rugged approach with no trail.. Sep 26, 2006
I had good time climbing 3 of the routes today with Andy. I look forward to going back again to try more of the routes.

Christian,
I experienced the same thing with the trail with all the recent rains.. The trail was meant to traverse a bit to keep erosion to a minimum, but If coming out up those slabs is better I will take a look at that option and move the main cairn further up towards Ridgeline. Also the wirebrush is still going to be used to do some more cleaning. Thanks for your input, always open for any suggestions..

Thanks

Time Capsule is a fun climb, of course I never bring the #4 when I need it..

Also pulling that green roof on toprope from the same chains is fun, guess you could try it on lead but it would be an ugly pendulum into the other side if you blew it..

There's not much (if any) of a trail left after the recent rains, on the way back I found it easier to traverse across some slabs that deposit you on the main trail but about 60 feet closer to Ridgeline..

You forgot you wire brush on a purple sling hanging on a tree, meant to grab it on the way out but I forgot. Aug 21, 2006

Fortunately the routes are on the best rock on this wall. Some routes required very little cleaning and some required the removal of "Death Blocks." As for the rock quality, it is pretty good.. More like the upper Mt. quality granite. Jul 24, 2006

Always wondered whether there were any routes on that rock.. For the longest time I assumed it was the Red Diamond wall, until I took the time to find the real Red Diamond..

How's the rock, is there a lot of loose stuff? Jul 24, 2006
