DescriptionA beautiful, steep wall in a secluded setting makes this a treat for the eye, body, and mind. The routes are long single pitches, mostly traditional with an adventurous feel. Rock quality is generally quite good, with interesting plates and incuts. Facing east means morning sun and great afternoon shade. Fires and monsoons have made the approach less than ideal; eliminating any trail that may have existed past the ridge. Be prepared to do some scree-skiing.
Getting ThereNew approach beta to be added soon.
Park at San Pedro Vista and hike left up the ridge for about 10min until you reach a flat(ish) grassy area. You should be able to see the obvious triangular wall from a few clear spots on the ridge as you come up. Once at the grassy spot you have two options.
1: Continue up and over the ridge, coming down slightly on the other side before traversing right and then down (steep scree) to the backside of the crag. Then descend the drainage (bushwack) on the right eventually gaining the base of the wall.
2: From grassy overlook, drop down making a fairly direct line to the base of the wall. The ground is steep, but not quite as loose as the other ridge descent.
Either way pretty much sucks and will probably take close to 30min the first time. Just remember that this place IS worth it.
