Description 

A long, appropriately slabby wall left (west) of the Swallow Wall and the Inclined Boulder. The rock tends to be sandy and sloped, with less of the bulletproof varnish found in other parts of the Original Side. This wall gets nearly all-day sun, making it nice in the winter, but very hot in the summer.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, walk along the graveled road, cross the arroyo on the bridge, and then head for the Inclined Boulder. The Slab Wall is to the left of, and partially behind, this boulder.

No Identity But a Title 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  NM : Gallup Area : ... : (02) Slab Wall
A fun line with delicate climbing on small sloping holds. Pull the start on crimps, then move up the steep slab to a rest below the slightly overhanging block at the top. The top is the crux for many because the holds are hard to find. Move either left or right at the final bolt to reach the anchors.Staying directly on the boltline at the bottom makes this climb harder (5.10d?). Also, watch out for loose rock, especially on the ledge about 2/3 up. Large blocks have come off in the past....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
