This area is down in the wash off to the right of the trail. As soon as the trail hits the wash, hike right down into the wash. The cliff is guarded by roofs and overhangs, so there are only a few climbs that make it to the top of the cliff. Shock the Poodle (5.9*) which climbs up a slanting dike and Amateur Sheep Shaggers (aka A.S.S.) at A2+ are two climbs on this cliff band.

Getting There 

When the trail drops down and crosses the wash, this cliff is down and to the right a hundred yardsor so.

Anyone climb Shock the Poodle lately? Doesn't look like there's much pro. Do you take the climb to the top of the cliff or finish right before the chossy looking overhang?
