(02) Slab Wall

New Mexico > Gallup Area > Mentmore > Original Side
Access Issue: Mentmore Adopt-a-Crag Cleanup, August 18/19, 2018 Details

Description

A long, appropriately slabby wall left (west) of the Swallow Wall and the Inclined Boulder. The rock tends to be sandy and sloped, with less of the bulletproof varnish found in other parts of the Original Side. This wall gets nearly all-day sun, making it nice in the winter, but very hot in the summer.

Getting There

From the parking lot, walk along the graveled road, cross the arroyo on the bridge, and then head for the Inclined Boulder. The Slab Wall is to the left of, and partially behind, this boulder.
