Description 

A group of walls under baylor peak. It is east facing. Approach from Aguirre Springs ranger station. Bring long pants and be prepared for serious bushwacking.

Getting There 

Park at Aguirre Springs ranger station (note you should probably leave $5 on your windshield). From here you will see the wall out in the distance to the west. You should be able to make out the route from here. Hike west and into the main canyon of these rock walls. This will take you right to the base of the North Buttress. This is below and north on the east face in relation to Baylor Peak.

Climbing Season

For the Organ Mountains area.

Weather station 10.1 miles from here
