Description

This north-facing cliff offers several moderate climbs to warm-up on before hiking to the other nearby cliffs. There are also a selection of 5.12 climbs located at this cliff if you choose to stay here for the day. Most of the climbs are bolted sport routes, but there are a couple moderate single-pitch trad lines as well (5.8ish).

Getting There

The cliff is about a fifteen minute hike NW of the SQ parking lot. Follow the main trail until it veers into the wash. Pass by the large white boulder and continue on the main trail until you see a sign for Turtlehead Peak on the left. Take this left, and follow this trail about 250 yards and head up the mound of dirt. From atop this mound you will be able to see the white outcroppings on the left (west). Before the trail veers back into the wash go left across the white slabs and head toward the north-facing Wake-up wall. The face consists of the lighter colored sandstone and has the black patina varnish covering it.
