BETA PHOTO: Photo-topo of the Slab Wall, including all known r...
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.
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.

An alright climb, this offwidth can be fun... if you're into offwidths. The bottom 15 feet (crux) especially offer the opportunity to practice your chicken-winging, handstacks, and knee locks. Reach the big ledge midway up, take a deep breath, and then climb the inside face behind the massive flake. Unless you brought BIG gear, don't expect pro from here until you reach the top. If you're a completist, give this one a shot, otherwise there are better climbs for your attention....[more] Browse More Classics in NM
