The upper left side of Early Wall has about 10 climbs, including both sport climbs and cracks. This area is sunny at first in the morning, but goes into the shade for the rest of the day. There is seldom more than one party climbing up here. The cliff disintegrates into a discontinuous chossy section not far to the right of 2-Wheel Drive.
A faint trail follows cairns up the left side of the large talus slope, passing some nice rock art along the way. It's a steep hike up, but doesn't take more than 10 or 15 minutes.

A great face and arete. Tricky start with thin feet and big moves. Pass this to a tricky and hard to read move off a ledge to some thin face. A hard move and tricky clip guards the anchors. Good rests save the day between the cruxes....[more] Browse More Classics in NM
