Start near the right end of the wall. Go up and left in the gully to a short fist crack start 15ft, then the crack thins to nice fingers with the occasional locker hand, some fun moves here. You will move up and left changing crack systems until the crack peeters out, then hang a hard left and traverse over 15 or 20 feet(good gear) to a nice varnished crack seam to the summit (place gear before the crack seam ,no pro in seam)you can protect the exit moves.


Katchina walls are on the right side of the valley you enter after passing frontier wall. Its about a 10 min walk from frontier wall. Katchina walls are obvious after about 5 mins of hiking.


This route takes the gear. Bring a standard trad rack with cams up to #3 camalot. Heavy on finger size pieces. The route wanders and is kinda long so bring runners. Trad anchor. 3rd class off left
