Description Suggest change

This is the area where most of the original established lines, and more steep routes are located. North face, gets shade all day.  When fully developed this will be one of the premier walls for difficult sport climbing in Southern AZ.  There are currently closed projects at this wall so please respect any red tags that are in place.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike up to the Farmhouse and hike right across to cliff band past a gully with lots of loose rocks in it (aka "the Bowling alley). The cliff has a large flat ledge under it.
