Description 

The upper wall with only seven routes. Warm up area for those strong enough for the Big Horn Wall. Shade is always prevalent. Killer Bees on the left, don't get swarmed. If anyone gets stung, run far and fast. Bees inject you with a pheremone that marks you as a target for the rest of the bees to attack.

Getting There 

Short hike but a little steep.

Sweat Lodge is arguably the best 5.11 on the Rosebud Wall, with great rock, interesting moves, and relatively sustained difficulty (and anchors at the lip!). The route begins easily and gets steadily harder as you ascend, with some cool roofs with big jugs. Shorter folks will have trouble at the second roof, making a long reach to a V-slot with the left hand from the white-with-bird-poo undercling jug. Its possible to get a kneebar right before the end, which is nice since the final moves to t...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico

The bees seem to be most active when its warm out. If you want to climb on this wall, the bees are less active on the coldest days. Alternatively, even on warm days, the bees are less active in the am before it warms up too much, and in the late afternoon.
