Description

As the name suggests, this sun-soaked crag is a great place to enjoy moderate lines on a cold day. If the sun is out, this is shirts off territory, even when snow and ice is present across the canyon. All of the routes here are moderate and short. The rock quality is very good. The lines are a bit squeezed, but with so little good rock on this side of the canyon, its understandable.

Getting There

The Heater is directly across the canyon from the Hueco Cave, on the north side of the streambed. This is the furthest east crag before the canyon bends to the north.

To approach, hike down the canyon bottom on a good cattle track. Once you are below the cliff a good trail leads up the short hillside to the cliff.
