Shaded all morning and nestled down in the valley between The Throne and the Deliverance ridge, the Southern Cross Wall is an overhanging, limestone exposure offering a bit of a change from the surrounding sandstone. The first route, Southern Cross, put up in 2007 as a mixed route, follows a few pockets and bolts up the overhang to a vertical face then ends, at the top, by climbing through a drainage. The rap anchors are below the top out. A single 0.5 pink tricam was left in a pocket for the next ascent.


As far as I know, Southern Cross is still the first route on the wall, as approached from the right, heading left from the slot canyon like drop. Start on the left side of this upper overhang, following a few pockets and bolts up to a vertical face and rap anchors.
