Description

A short 5 minute walk from the entrance to Sanctuary Cove, this 45 foot wall presents two moderate and well protected face climbs in a beautiful Sonoran desert setting. The rock is somewhat crumbly but the climbs are safe. The left bolted path offers an interesting bulging crux to start off, followed by easier climbing to the anchor bolts. The bolted path on the right is fairly sustained climbing throughout. There is an easy walk off from the top to descend or set up a top rope from. Not sure when the climbs were bolted, I stumbled upon them hiking in the area.

Getting There

Park in the Sanctuary Cove pull out, close to the entrance. Walk out the exit gate and walk south down the dirt road. You'll pass a US STATE boundary sign, continue down the trail for 3 minutes while looking out for a wall on the left. A large exposed face can be seen facing the path with two lines of bolts running up. Scramble off the path up to the base of the wall. The top can be reached hiking both left or right of the wall.
