Description

This is a great little area for those willing to hike a little farther for their day of climbing. Although the cliff does not have a ton of climbs, what is there is high quality and a little different than what you will find at the other El Salto crags. With more of a pure face climbing style and even some cracks (!!!) to play on this make for a nice change of pace. Those in search of tufas merely need to scramble to the second tier to get your fix. There are several 35M lines up there that are as good as any of the tufa lines at the more popular crags. The cliff also gets shade a little sooner than La Boca and Animas meaning you can extend your climbing day by a few hours.

Getting There

Hike past La Boca for ~10 mins. When the canyon splits stay right hiking along a two strand barb wire fence. Look for cairned side trail on your left after crossing the narrow and forested wash. The trail immediately becomes steep and stays steep all the way to the cliff.  After 10 mins. the cliff comes in to view and you will take another cairned left leading you back to the lower tier of the cliff.  All told you will hike 30 mins beyond La Boca. As mentioned before, the hike is steep and sunny. Prepare accordingly.
