BETA PHOTO: Name of the walls and locations


This wall currently has six routes which two of them have two pitches. The routes are a mix of trad and sport but mainly sport. The rock quality is good but because is a brand new wall there is a chance that there is still some loose stuff, so please wear a helmet. The wall will be in the shade in the morning and the northwest facing will be in the sun on the afternoon. It is a fun little spot!

Getting There 

The start of the approach is the same as Trad Wall. Turn left to a trail marked with a cairns that leads to Glad Wall. The turn is before getting to Ok Coral and after JizzneyLand.

I know that is very tempting to steal a hidden stash of bolts and hangers from a crag that is being developed. This takes a lot of time, effort, and money for someone to come and steal it. If you see a stash and it is not yours DON'T F#$&ING STEAL IT!

I had one at Grad Wall so that this past weekend I could finish bolting a project that I have over there. The f#$%er, whoever it is, took the hangers, but left the hammer (thank you for this one...sarcasm). If you can be so polite to put it back (if you haven't use it yet) I will appreciate it. If not just remember KARMA is a bitch.

I know that the climbing community is better than this.

Packrats love shiney stuff. If they left the hammer you might look for a packrat nest.

Sorry Angel. I hope EFR is right.

Last summer some keys disappeared from a tent at the Reef parking area. Turns out some critter pulled them under a nearby shrub and was chewing on the nylon key ring. Luckily they were found but it was not fun.

I hope Eric is right and that this is the case. But I find it very hard to believe that packrats took an entire black bag full of more than 15 bolts and hangers. If so, well that will be a new one in my book of crazy things that happens in Arizona.

I will also assume that 5 draws left on a project where taken and carry out by rats. Those are some vicious rats!

Shit you are writing a book too????? :)

Sounds like you are right. Maybe rats of a different kind!

No, no book for me. I just like having fun putting up routes, when I can.

Just kidding you about the book Angel. I am so sorry that somebody took that stuff. I always worry a little bit about stashing gear but it sucks to see stashes being stolen. I have a few extra bolts that I can give you to help offset your loss.

Really hope it was rats (4legged kind) Angel. I'll help you look around for them next time we're up there. Awfully kind offer Geir. Just another reason I like this community. :)
