Description

Born from the Tea and Jesusita Fires in 2009, the "IW" offers a high concentration of routes on north Facing sandstone climbing off of the West fork of Cold Spring Trail

Getting There

Drive up Gibraltor Road like you going to Gibraltor Rock, but pull over and park at the long hairpin turn. You should see a Forest Service trailhead sign, which is for the West Fork of Cold Spring Trail. Walk down the trail and before the trail makes its first right turn there is a knoll on your left. The top of that knoll is the top of the Main Wall, with anchors accessible for top roping. You should see a fairly obvious trail leading zig zap up to the left side of the peak, as well as trail branches leading to the other areas.
