Description Suggest change

This is the wall across from Cliffs of Insanity, and has a huge kink in the wall that makes part of it face south for about 80 yards. There is a big right-arching crack visible from the approach. It seems a lot of the routes are new considering the book shows about 7. I'd say there are about 25 and most are 5.10s and 5.11s and one 13 ...(by Didier?)

Getting There Suggest change

Take the gate directly across from the Super Bowl camp, then the first left turn, then right turn after a dip in a dried stream. There is a trail from the old mine at the end of this road heading down and right. The mine is way cool to check out. Next time I would just head straight back on the main dirt road inside the gate, and then just turn left into the dried large wash and drive until the lower-angle gully is in sight and hike the weakness up to the wall where the wall (left to right) takes a left turn out for 80 yards and then turns left for the rest of the way. Most of the routes are in the corner area and all have plaques.
