Description Suggest change

Three sport lines, two of which have a second pitch. The routes can be climbed as a single long pitch or broken into two at the mid-point anchor. The first pitch of Scorpion King, which is 5.7, is frequently climbed by itself. These routes are well-bolted but the reddish-orange rock is chossy. As such the climber should move with awareness and helmets are recommended for belayers. One should also be cognizant of bee activity. There is a known hive nearby and there has been a serious attack.

The Forehand Wall receives sun until late afternoon.

Getting There Suggest change

The Forehand Wall is reached by hiking through the boulder and sand filled wash. Take the path of least resistance, following the faint climber's trail when visible. Watch the left side of the wash for a trail the rises out of the grass to the base of the cliff. After reaching the cliff hike back (left / south) towards the highway. Scorpion King is the leftmost route.

The approach takes 10-15 minutes.
