This cliff has seen some incredible development. Despite some previous complaining about routes being sharpie'd, most routes are now labeled with climbing tape over some small stone propped at the cliff. A great compromise for such an active area.

Many long routes are present. The developers have done a fantastic job of labeling pitch difficulty and length as a good portion of routes require 2 lower-offs to reach the ground. Jan 16, 2018

What time does the wall go into the sun during the winter months? I have to drive down this way for work and wondering if it is a viable option.

Thanks in advance for anyone who helps! Nov 21, 2018 · Temporary Report

The main wall gets no sun (if ever) this time of year. The Multi pitch wall (Simple Truths etc) gets sun about 2pm. I would not bother going up there unless its close to 70 in Mesquite. That would make it low/mid 50s which I think is perfect. Try Sun City if its cold, its in the Limestone Bible. Nov 27, 2018
