We added and enlarged the cairns leading to the cliff. Take Soldier Trail south from the metal trail sign just before you the wash that leads to Jailhouse Rock. Follow the trail uphill, as soon as it levels out turn left into the drainage (marked by cairn ontop of aprox 2'x4' boulder). Follow cairns/drainadge uphill for about 100 yards and the crag is on the right. The easiest way to reach the bottom is around the downhill side (right side looking off the top, left side looking at the cliff) but you can get down on either side.
From left to right the routes are:

|Great place for a quick climb on a late afternoon. Gorgeous views of BootHill; etc. We've seen a few deer here!|

Area provides great views of both Tucson and Boot Hill.
Don't be fooled by "summer shade." We were here midday in late October and there was almost no shade to speak of. We were split between huddling on the North side of a single boulder and under a short tree. Shade exists only in the late afternoon I imagine, but we never saw it. After a couple climbs we bailed for cooler locations. This would be a good winter spot.
The hike up the wash was very overgrown, which may be unique to the late monsoon rains this year, but I suggest hiking in with pants. Route is well marked with cairns.
Sloth is on the far right of this wall, not on the left side as stated in the beta. Otherwise the routes are in order. Thanks to Nick for correcting that.
There are now 3 sets of bolt and chain anchors. Only Data/Grasshopper Groove needs a sling anchor.

- Fun and tough set of routes
- Its a real treat to be able to top-rope an area with three 5.10 routes (the two 5.9 and the 5.8 consensus routes are all much harder than the 5.10's I've done at Green Slabs, Teen Age Mutant Ninja Turtles and Boot Hill)
- Coordinates to get there, using UTM and WGS 84:
leave Soldier Trail and go up drainage: 12 S 526061 3577360
crag: 12 S 526181 3577356
