Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionPino Wall and Jawbone stand relatively isolated at the southern reaches of the main Sandia Mountains Crest. Roughly, they are south of the upper tram terminal, north of Pino Canyon, and just to the west of the crest ridge.
Getting ThereIf approaching from the main crest parking lot, hike south to the upper tram terminal and then continue south on the crest trail. A little before the first major switchback that turns east away from the ridge, the trail makes an obvious close approach to the top of the ridge. From here there is one approach choice for Jawbone and at least two for Pino Wall.
For Jawbone, take a well defined boot trail that leads up through a little grassy area and to a small saddle in the crest ridge. At the ridge, Jawbone is visible to the west. Drop down to an aspen stand on a broader saddle between Jawbone and the crest ridge. Pino Wall lies to the south but is not visible.
For Pino Wall, one has a choice of a longer approach on foot or a shorter approach on foot followed by a rap. If doing the former, first proceed as for Jawbone above. In any case, Pino Wall page has the remaining details.
