Description

This wall is a southern facing low angle wall. It is a great place to climb early in the morning during the summer and all day from fall to spring. Many of the climbs have been done with snow at the base in a light fleece and wind pants.

Most of the routes are 195' with chains at 95' and chains at the top. The routes can all be done as single pitches or in two 95' pitches. These were the first routes bolted at the area. The rock is top quality with nice exposure and over 1755' of vertical climbing on this wall. Bring your quickdraws - you need at least 22 quick draws to these routes in one long pitch!!

All of these routes require a 60 meter rope. Danger, don't bring any short ropes here! Do not belay from the log below the ledge - you will not have enough rope with a 60 meter rope. Use the safety bolt on the ledge for SWTA, Biaxident and 7 Year Itch

Getting There

Take Mt Lemmon highway to MP 19.4 (just before Ranger Station) take a left* onto Organization Ridge road, go 0.3 miles and park at Palisades Trailhead parking. Walk 50'-100 ft further on the road in the direction you have been driving to the path on the left. (photo.) Go uphill to black stump, follow the well-worn path and cairns to a large cairn (photo) about 10min in. Left goes to Boy Scout wall, straight ahead goes to Cave Wall, Tall Wall and Incinerated Ridge. You come out on the top of Cave /Tall Wall (15-20 min from car). Go right and down over some slabs to reach the climber’s-left side of “Incinerated”. From the top another path seemed to lead left and down, presumably to the far right side of Cave. * The gate may appear to be CLOSED until you drive right up to it. Once you are down at Incinerated Wall, a short steep path leads from the far right side down to the base of Tall Wall.
