El Machete is a modern style route in a quaint side canyon south of The Coke Wall. Named affectionatly after the tool of preference during early missions to and through the archetypal Oak Creek Canyon approach. El Machete was perplexingly established ground up after several days of exciting free-aid siege, hand bolts on lead and dirt plumbing.

The route climbs a upside-down cake style slab to a gently over hung blade before finally exiting through a large roof. Technical and distinct crux beta and the perpetual "barn-door effect" will make you glad you didn't just bring your guns to a knife fight.


El Machete is located in the tight side canyon south of The Coke Wall. Approach as you would for The Coke Wall, at obvious fork in wash head south looking towards the west wall for the Machete feature. Beware of the Land Before Time sized Ivey "trees"!
