The SE facing wall seen from the north central park of Tucson up Finger Rock canyon. 10 aid routes stand on this feature from A.2 to A.4+ (crux route, crux pitch requires 20+ beaks in a row). I'll wait for the FA parties to post up details on the routes themselves. The rock is a question with expanding and loose stuff all over, certainly bring a helmet and "Depends".

Getting There 

From the north end of Alvernon Road, take the Finger Rock trail (no dogs, and parking is daylight hours only). 1 mile in (about 20 minutes w/o a load) you will reach a boulder below the wall with numerous boulder problems (ala Bob Murray). Hike up the hill from here to hit the wall.
