|Several new sport routes on and left of fire wall.|

Dennis Jackson's guidebook, Climbing in New Mexico, also covers Comales Canyon and has a nice sketch of the Water Wall.
The rock at Comales is the Ortega Quartzite, or an equivalent unit.
The new sport rounts on/left of the Fire Wall are decent routes that should improve with some more traffic.

A link to a recent rockfall accident, maybe an issue from recent rains:
Also, I may have left a gray rainjacket there that day. If it is found, please PM me.

|after cleaning a route here when the rock was wet, WAIT 24HRS FOR THE ROCK TO DRY AFTER A SOAKING RAIN! I cleaned off 10 pieces of rock on holds that had been tested recently. A flexy flake was moving about 80% more! steeper routes that stay drier are obviously better but be aware.|
