West facing, overhung wall south of Beer Block. A 5.11 version of the Rad Wall--similar in nature but not quite as steep. Cobble Wobble is one of the best 5.10s at El Rito and not to be missed.

Getting There 

Continue on the trail beyond Beer Block, and look to your left. There is a large scoop on the left of the wall and at the right side is a coordoor that leads up toward Schoolhouse Slab, Rad Wall, and Gnar Wall.

Cobble Wobble 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  New Mexico : El Rito : ... : Big Pine Wall
One of the best routes at El Rito. Very pumpy and sustained after the initial slab. Cruise up the slabby lower section to a no-hands stance below the steep wall above. Make powerful moves up the faint corner and keep pulling on big holds to the anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico

There is a very large dead tree that is positioned to fall onto the base of the Big Pine Wall area. It is already broken at the base and leaning on the branches of a living tree. This is basically a ticking time bomb, so be very wary of sitting or belaying within its fall path, or when walking under it towards the other walls in the area.

In general, it is good to look up and around you when at this crag to keep an eye out for number of other hazard trees exist in the area. Something we don't typically think about as climbers...
