The Iron Wall is a haven of good stone, and carefully hung columns in the middle of the South Side of the canyon. Though this intimidating wall hosts several hard test pieces, it has also become a great warm up sector with a number of good 5.10s in close proximity to each other.

Getting There 

From the main camping area, just east of the Hobel Memorial by 100 feet is a cluster of good sized ponderosas next to the rim. One cedar sits atop the rim, with a route on either side.

Pig Iron is a striking, almost elegant looking line when seen from across canyon. However, the harder climbing on this pitch is both bouldery, and down home thin hands jamming. Rappel 90' to good mini tower ledge, one piece fixed belay- bring medium wires to supplement.From the ledge head up lower angle right facing dihedral with smeary foot edges. Mantle up onto very slopey ledge below the roof, and have a look at the first crux. A large left side pull rail allows passage...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
