Description

This west and north facing wall has a ton of long routes and you will want to take your 70M rope. More orange in color the wall is steep and over 100 feet tall. It has the highest concentration of quality 5.11 and 5.12 routes at the Homestead. Bring a lot of draws and some endurance.

With only a few 5.10 climbs the wall sees little visitation by moderate teams.

The north end dubbed the North Buttress and separated on this site has a ton of good climbs also.

Getting There

From the drainage continue past Slate Nation's trail to the left. A bit farther on you will find two or three large saguaro cactus on the right side of the drainage. A cairn marks the steep but short hike to the base of the wall.
