Description

The best wall at Mud Mountain with routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.12. Faces south and gets sun most all day but shade does creep in from left to right starting around 2:00pm in December with much of the left side of the wall in the shade by 4pm. 

Getting There

From the parking area fallow the cairns along the ridge then down across the wash.  Please take the time to follow the cairns as the area is fragile and rugged . Continue upward on the trail, then head right until you reach the limestone wash.  The trail continues up the wash and then brings you to the far right side of the walls.  As you head south on the trail you will reach the far right side of the Winter Wall.
