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.

Almost certainly the most-climbed route at Mentmore, "Daniel" is a favorite of program groups and new climbers. However, this is NOT a great route to get new climbers started on. It may be only 5.8, but it's slabby and thin, with some technical moves and very few jugs or secure rests. Even the very first move can shut some new climbers down. I recommend "Big Blobs of Love" "STD" or "Why Crack" as better 'first climbs' on the Original Side.Climb the slabby face to a steeper section above the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
