This west and north facing wall has a ton of long routes and you will want to take your 70M rope. More orange in color the wall is steep and over 100 feet tall. It has the highest concentration of quality 5.11 and 5.12 routes at the Homestead. Bring a lot of draws and some endurance.
With only a few 5.10 climbs the wall sees little visitation by moderate teams.
The north end dubbed the North Buttress and separated on this site has a ton of good climbs also.
From the drainage continue past Slate Nation's trail to the left. A bit farther on you will find two or three large saguaro cactus on the right side of the drainage. A cairn marks the steep but short hike to the base of the wall.

Stout climbing right off the deck to the first break in the wall at about 35 ft. Need to stay away from the funky rock at the broken area half way up the wall. It is easy to avoid by climbing over or right of the bolt. A hard move up to where the angle eases leads to the start of a tricky crux which leads to an endless series of sequences that never allow you to get completely off your arms. Really cool....[more] Browse More Classics in Arizona
