Description Suggest change

You'll think you're at Maple Canyon!! This sector is the gently overhanging pink wall to the left of the Cobble Cave. No pockets like El Rito, this is climbing on softballs, basketballs and footballs! The overhanging part is about 55 feet tall to a vertical section which continues to about the 65'-70' height where the wall starts to slab out and the routes end. The matrix on this wall is REAL bad but IF it cleans up the climbs will be awesome! Some of the coolest movement in New Mexico on some of the state's worst rock! Don't let that stop you though, these routes are closely bolted and pretty fun.

** All routes are equipped with steel lowering hardware. Please avoid toproping through the lowering hardware as both gates of the hooks are oriented facing forward and don't ensure sufficient protection for toproping. Instead, build your own anchor with personal gear and have only the last person lower off the fixed lowering hardware.

Getting There Suggest change

This is the sector of wall between the Cobble Cave and the Vaudeville area "notch". From the cave go north or walk straight up the hill from the "log bridge" stream crossing to the wall
