DescriptionThe leftmost (western) end of the Original Side, this area is sunny and protected from the wind, making it a good cold-weather area. The rock tends to be sandy and featured, without much varnish.
Jabba the Hutt is a long, low, steeply-overhanging bulge of sandstone. There are many boulder problems on it, none of which are recorded. Bring a pad, a spotter, and have fun making sequences up. Trying to top out is not recommended.
Sport-Homo Wall is a small collection of climbs at the far end of the cliff, next the railroad tracks, that see very little traffic. The rock is not very strong, and should NOT be climbed on unless absolutely dry, but it does form interesting face features that make for good climbing. This Wall also includes both Mentmore's easiest climb (Leaning Slab, 5.3), and one of the hardest climb (Demon Within, 5.12a).
Getting ThereFrom the parking lot, follow the gravel road. Cross the arroyo and stay on the road until almost reaching the railroad tracks, then cut right across the saltbush to the obvious bulge of Jabba the Hutt.
