Description Suggest change

The second area of climbing you see as you walk along the trail. This is at the right end of Palmos Peak and is home to some of the longer routes at Palomas. No slab technique involved, there are actually holds here!

** All routes are equipped with steel lowering hardware. Please avoid toproping through the lowering hardware as both gates of the hooks are oriented facing forward and don't offer sufficient protection for toproping. Instead, build your own anchor with personal gear and have only the last person lower off the fixed lowering hardware.

Getting There Suggest change

After you pass "The Right Wing" (the first short wall with 2 bolted routes), hike uphill until you reach the next big wall. This area is at the right end of the wall.
