Looking up the Bull Horn from the base of Excremen...

Description 

This tower-like wall is the first big wall you'll come to as you approach from the trailhead towards the Monster Wall. Two routes exist on this tower and while there is a lot of rock still, most of it is broken up by vegetated ledges so little or no new route potential exists (at least that I can see). The rock is a bit chunky down low (read: tread lightly) but gets better as you get higher.

Getting There 

Once you reach the river from the approach trail, hike southwest along the river for a minute or two. Cross the stream on a nice foot bridge and continue downstream on the trail. Look to your right for the first big, towering wall. That's it. The two routes are on the left side of the wall starting behind the trees.

Junky looking climbing through dubious stuff for the first couple bolts gets you to some much better jugs for a couple more bolts. The crux bulge comes about halfway up. Figure out how to paw your way up and over this to some more good holds. Steeper, fun climbing with some less obvious moves continues to easier ground and the anchor. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico
