Sunny and generally south to south-east facing. This can be considered a secluded (remote) area. Of course, the road noise can, at times, be distracting.

The approach to the wall requires a steep hike up hill, bushwhacking through cacti and agave.

Rock quality is good to very good.

Getting There 

Located along the Bumble Bee - Cleator - Crown King road at the top of a large switchback just before mile 24 (as measured from exit 248 on I-17).
