BETA PHOTO: White Wall and Pottery Wall from the parking area


Within sight of the main parking area at the Draw are several limestone walls with an abundance of excellent problems, mostly vertical to slightly overhanging and in the V0-V5 range with a few steeper, harder lines scattered around. Left to right:

The Egg: An egg-shaped wall of white limestone with two great V4 roof problems on the left and two much harder lines climbing into the vertical seam in the center.

Killer Wall: A long band of multi-colored and well-featured stone peppered with large huecos, pockets and slopers. Contains some of the best non-roof climbs at the Draw, including The Whip and the Cross and a long, difficult traverse of the low row of pockets (The Killer Inside Me), along with a bunch of good moderate warmups.

White Wall: A vertical-to-slightly-overhanging band of pale stone, unique in that it is relatively devoid of pockets and most problems instead use edges, slopers, seams and chunky blocks to reach a break about 12 feet up. There are a few great moderate problems here along with a couple of very difficult lines. White Riot, the 5.13 trad route recently featured in Climbing, climbs out the high roof above this wall.

Pottery Wall: A funky, black-and-white striped cliff with a roof at the bottom climbing into a wavy wall above. There are many easier stand-start problems with very difficult low starts under the roof, but the main attraction here is Street Fighter, a cool traverse of the row of pockets running the length of the wall.

Getting There 

These walls are located directly across from the parking lot on the right side of the draw. Take the main path out of the parking lot through the bottom of the streambed and follow the trail. Approach time is less than a minute.

Tin Ho! V4 6B  Arizona : Northern Arizona : ... : Parking Area Bouldering
The roof up and left from the Killer Wall: start on good holds and make a couple of very committing moves to reach the lip. The landing is more or less a loose rocky gully, try not to tumble all the way to the bottom of the Draw. Exciting!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
