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.

The crux is a little tricky to do cleanly, but it's great fun. It is located near the top of the route at the beginning of the bulge. There are great handholds and footing in some places and none in others but the difficulty is sustained....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
