DescriptionThis is a mixed area with a few slab and a few traditional crack routes. The rock is typical granite found throughout the McDowell Mountain park.
For the moment, access to this area by climbers should be from a temporary trailhead/parking area that is located near the old Morrell's Wall Parking Lot area. From there, the new Tom's Thumb Trail leads up toward Morrells Wall, Gardeners Wall and on to Tom's Thumb. Please look for, and use designated climber access trails.
Getting ThereThis area is located to the North East of the Morrell's Wall Parking Lot area. When approaching from the main trail head bathroom area Start on Tom's Thumb Trail 0.1 mile. Then take the Mesquite canyon trail left(Southeast) for 0.2miles until in connects to the Feldspar trail then take another left(East) continue for a short distance until you encounter a sign marking a climbers trail. If unable to read the sign there will be a large boulder about the size of a house with an overhanging rivet ladder on the right. Continue on the well marked climbers trail until reaching a sign marking the Girlie Man climbing area. A short scramble will lead to the base of a slab area with several bolted lines.
