Description [Suggest Change]
This wall gets morning sunshine and afternoon shade so it can be climbed from fall to spring, later if you are a hard core desert rat. It is the color of slate and has some bullet hard limestone. The routes will be slightly less than vertical unless they are undercut at the bottom. These can be pretty bouldery to start. Routes range from 50 feet long to 25 feet at the right most end. These right hand routes are new since spring 2006.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Continue up drainage until a cairn marks a trail to the left. It is 60 feet above the base of the drainage and 15-20 minutes from the parking.
