At the very left end of the Red Wall, detached, is a shorter block with 5 short routes on it. The routes start on technical, slabby terrain and top out on vertical to slightly overhanging rock.

The routes can be either led (though some will feel fairly run-out) or top-roped, and the first four share the same anchor. The top anchors can be accessed by climbing the back of the block.

Getting There 

From The Box parking lot, walk North through the stream bed. When you see the large Red Wall on the right look toward the end of it and you will see a detached block at it's base. Follow the trails to its base. It is directly across from the overhung stream bed bouldering area.

Start just to the left of 5.8 Variation. Easy moves take you to a reachy first bolt. Clip it and complete some technical movement on slab (trust your feet!) to the second bolt. Trend up and right to some jugs and a crack where you can slot a green (0.75) Camelot. After another body length, a small pocket made an excellent home for a small nut. Trend up and left to the anchors. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
