Rapunzel Wall is sort of located to the right of, and in the shadow of, the Enchanted Tower. Tucked back in there, the wall features a few nice moderate routes on vertical to just less than vertical rock. As expected, this a popular place and you may encounter groups of climbers here.

Getting There 

Approach up past the Enchanted Tower from the parking lot below (or trails across from the left), hiking up the left-to-right trail that leads up from the Tower. Five minute approach.


Left to right as you encounter them from the trail. Trail enters at the left side of the crag. At the far left side is a small cave.

The Blind Prince: 5.10a
The Thorn Bush: 5.10a
Fee Fi Fo Fum: 5.9
Unknown Arete: 5.8
Rapunzel's Revenge: 5.8
Jack's Bean Stalk: 5.7

Shares an anchor with The Blind Prince. This line is a bit steeper and feels a bit more strenous than its neighbor. The crux is pulling over a small bulge.This is a good route for someone starting to break into the 5.10s. Short but secure....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico

I seem to remember a route in-between Rapunzel's Revenge and Fee Fi Fo Fum, which follows an arete. this was actually one of the more memorable routes on the rapunzel wall, but I don't know any information about its name. I felt it to be 5.8. 4 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

Rumor has it that Walt Wilkinson put this route up last year. Not sure what he (if it was he) named or graded it however. Will have to ask him when I see him again.
