Description 

The West End Wall is an intriguing spread of tall, morphed columns, and stunning architecture. Over the last number of years this wall has delivered long, striking lines which has created a full value venue. This wall is stained with dramatic black water streaks interfolded with other worldly swaths of vibrant yellow lichen. It's almost psychedelic. If you are looking to climb a lot of hard routes in a day, this would be high on the list of sectors which dish out some of the most classic climbing in the canyon. From across canyon you can see a very conspicuous drainage/low spot in the top of the cliff. This low spot marks the top of Nyctophiliac, and Like A Shadow In The Night.

This wall gets morning shade until midday during the summer months, an increased shade during the Fall season. 65 to 70 degree ambient temps will seem perfect.

Getting There 

From the camping area, hike west along canyon rim.

Nyctophilia is a love of nighttime or darkness, and the route was named for the striking black streak which defines the line. The route is a jaw dropping, heart kicking, scream inducing, all natural gear line which climbs the center of the afore mentioned streak, on the West End Wall to the climber's right of Phantasm.This steep, bouldery crack climb starts out with 50' of thoughtful "Overlookesque" trad daddy terrain with ver...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
