The Bivi Wall is named for the ledge on its right end, about halfway up, that is "big enough to bivi on." This wall contains a few excellent routes on generally solid rock.
Find the Bennie Silva Wall and walk left along the cliff. Alternately, look for the massive boulder tilted 45 degrees off horizontal (the Inclined Boulder), which is clearly visible from the parking lot (and in the beta photo). The Bivi Wall is just right of this boulder, while the Swallow Wall is behind it.

One of the most popular routes at Mentmore, and all the more so since it was accorded "area classic" status in Falcon Press's 'Rock Climbing New Mexico". This IS an excellent route: steep and sustained, with interesting movement throughout on a variety of hold types. For the full effect, stay on the boltline; moving right to rest on lower-angled terrain makes it significantly easier. This route suffers a bit from loose and crumbly rock, however. Be careful not to bean the belayer. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NM
