Description 

A primarily north facing wall hidden in the Rincons just south of Rincon/Wrong mountain peaks. The rock off the ground (for 150') of the lower wall is hit or miss- mostly miss with not ideal route potential. There are about three established lines and maybe 3 more might be added in the next 25 years (see getting there). The walls range from 200' to 350'. I doubt I will ever go back but the pools were cool and refreshing on the way up.


Getting There 

Drive up Mescal/Happy Valley road about 11 miles. Look west for the canyon that leads to the wall. We came in from the north to get to a series of drainages that lead up to the main canyon. Contrary to Kerry's guide, the approach is no where near "1 hour". It took us 4 hours each way. After walking up the main gully for a long ways, a steep scree gully leads up to the wall (best option?).
