Description Suggest change

This is the main wall of the area, hosting a half-dozen or so routes, mostly easy to moderate. Hence, don’t be surprised to find a crowd hanging out here. Although there are several routes here many share anchors so there can only be about three parties climbing at any time. The route on the far left with the hanging belay (Power Grid) has its own open shuts. The two overhanging jug-hauls in the center share an anchor. And all the routes on the right side starting with the slab share an anchor.

Some recent new development has happened on the far right side of the wall, around the corner. The routes look like they could still use some cleaning up.

Getting There Suggest change

After you pass over the dam and scramble down the hill into the wash, follow the stream for about 100 meters until you see a large wall on the left side with an obvious boulder scramble approach. There is an optional dirt path on the right side of the wash that will also get you there, but is actually sketchier than the boulder scramble in the wash itself.
