Description 

The leftmost (western) end of the Original Side, this area is sunny and protected from the wind, making it a good cold-weather area. The rock tends to be sandy and featured, without much varnish.

Jabba the Hutt is a long, low, steeply-overhanging bulge of sandstone. There are many boulder problems on it, none of which are recorded. Bring a pad, a spotter, and have fun making sequences up. Trying to top out is not recommended.

Sport-Homo Wall is a small collection of climbs at the far end of the cliff, next the railroad tracks, that see very little traffic. The rock is not very strong, and should NOT be climbed on unless absolutely dry, but it does form interesting face features that make for good climbing. This Wall also includes both Mentmore's easiest climb (Leaning Slab, 5.3), and one of the hardest climb (Demon Within, 5.12a).


Getting There 

From the parking lot, follow the gravel road. Cross the arroyo and stay on the road until almost reaching the railroad tracks, then cut right across the saltbush to the obvious bulge of Jabba the Hutt.

A really enjoyable route (especially the lower half) that sees almost no traffic at all. Climb up along the incipient seam on tough sidepulls and sloping crimps (crux) to gain horizontal rails. Make a TOUGH 3rd clip (don't blow it or you'll probably deck), then pull onto the ledge. Pull the roof above you (which is easier than it looks), make sure not miss the last clip above the roof, and finish to the anchors. The start is the best part, with great balancy moves. Either follow the crack a...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

Photo-topo of the left (west) end of the Sport-Homo Wall, including all known routes.  Bolted anchors are shown; routes w/o anchors indicated DO NOT HAVE anchors.  All anchors can be accessed from the top of the cliff for toproping, but pulling the rope after rapping can be difficult from some of them.
