Phoenix South Mountain Park & Preserve MORE INFO >>>


A striking wall due to its orange and black gradients. It has some carvings in it that dates itself to 1935 (around the time when the park was being developed), and a distinctive and large eye-shaped impression on its left wall. There are some fun climbs with many traversing variations.

Getting There 

Google maps:

From the Mormon trailhead, walk about a quarter mile up the trail. Once you reach a part of the trail where it becomes flat momentarily, you should see an area to your right where you can peer into the canyon below. From here, there is a light footpath that goes down into the canyon (you can make it out on google map's "earth" mode). Walk down this a little ways, but not all the way to the bottom of the canyon. This wall will be on your right. It has some etchings in it that says "VH/RH/35".

There's another unfinished route starting at Route 4 and moving directly up. It can probably either be done as a dyno or static move.
