Description 

This mostly west-facing crag is a great place for the 5.10 - 5.11 climber with numerous lines to choose from in that range. Climbs here tend to be vertical to slightly overhanging, somewhat pumpy and on rock that ranges from decent to fabulous.

Sunny for most of the day with it's westerly and southern exposure, this is the place to be when it's cold out. Recommended routes here include Room For Improvement (5.10d), Gun For Hire (5.11a), Good to be Awake (5.11a).


Getting There 

You'll find this just north of both Raven Rocks and Crucified Crag. A well marked trail leads to the base.

The Mayr book and this hand-drawn topo strongly disagree about which route is which on the Hueco Wall. No idea which source is correct, but since the Mayr book is accused of being riddled with errors, and since this topo (origin unknown) includes more lines... dunno.

The link posted is to a copy of the old Aaron Rough topos which predate any and all guidebooks to the area. The Hueco Wall topo lists nine routes while actually there are actually just eight as listed here online; the additional route, an unnamed 5.11a right of "Dance This", does not exist.
