Description

Short, steep cragging above the Rio Grande at the gorge rim. The first significant wall you come to after hiking along the rim from Dead Cholla. Some anchors easily accessed from the lip.

Getting There

From the Dead Cholla parking area...head up river along the dirt track above the cliff band. Go less than a mile passing the Panoramic Cliff (obvious anchors on the top of a cliff).

Travel about fifty yards past the clifftop with anchors and then through a wash. Look for cairns and then drop right and down to the upper cliff band.

To reach the lower cliff band. Hug the upper cliff band for 60 yards. about 100 feet past Black Mamba go right and down on a faint trail follow cairns to the lower band.
