The cliff faces due South, and so is in the sun most of the day. There are crevices & buttresses that provide shade in key locations along the cliff. A beautiful pine & aspen forest grows along the base offering welcome shade & shelter from the incessant wind. All of the typical crag hazards exist, especially rattlesnakes & lightning. This area is extremely exposed to electrical storms, and retreat to the parking lot requires a harrowing dash along the stark plain. The weather can change in a heartbeat, and approaching storms are often obscured from view.
From Left to Right, the crags are:
Rising From the Plains
Wild Horses Wall
Hot Tamale Wall
Five Ten Wall
Rode Hard Wall
Cowboy Poetry Wall
To reach Rising From The Plains & Rodeo Wave, the most expediate option is to continue West on the main track until you are directly south of the far left end of the Main Wail. Turn right here and head north to Rising From the Plains.
