Description Suggest change

This is a morning shade wall, great for warm season climbing. It faces northwest and does not see sun until after 3pm. The routes here combine face and some crack climbing, though none of the routes require gear other than clipping bolts as the cracks were either between large, solid, but hollow blocks or in short sections that didn't justify leaving that one bolt out. There are a couple routes that have an optional hand-sized piece such as the warmup "mice and Men" or the two lines that share the same start with "Steinbook" and "Traipse of Wrath". The crag cam is left in the rock below "Traipse of Wrath" , please replace it when you are done.
***Note that for much of this crag the routes require a step or two on the soft, red earth underlying the basalt plateau. This is unconsolidated sediment of the Santa Fe Formation and is not to be trusted to hold your weight. We have carefully places stepping rocks at locations to allow you to easily clip the first bolt, but please be careful treading on this formation as it will continue to degrade with time if it is abused and will affect the crag. Most routes have a low first bolt to make it easy to start the routes safely.

Getting There Suggest change

Same approach as for the Eden wall, but when crossing "Arroyo Ancho" (Wide Arroyo) aim for the east wall of the canyon (on your left) by approaching the trail starting at the base of a long nose slope that descends from the escarpment towards you at the arroyo.
