Description

The main wall is a 100' wall that's mostly just less than vertical with the occasional steep section. The wall begins right next to the El Rito River. At roughly 90' tall, most all routes on the main wall require a single 60m rope. Many routes have an inconspicuous metal dog tag at the base of the route to help in route identification.

Getting There

The Main Wall is the most obvious and impressive formation in the area. It's the first wall you will see as you hike in from the parking area.
