Description 

A steep brown wall with some good rock. It has about five bolted routes including a couple of excellent 5.11's.

Routes from left to right:

Cat in a Can – 5.11b
La Vida Gatos – 5.12b
Mi Vida Loca – 5.11c
Hootenanny – 5.11c
Lazarus – 5.12b

Getting There 

Located below the overlook in Virgin Canyon, there are a couple of ways to access this wall. Perhaps the best way is to go up the stairs until they dead-end, then go downhill along the wall to your right.

If you like bouldery climbing with the crux right off the ground then you will like this route.A large move off an undercling leads to a good hold and the first bolt. From here make a hard move up and right, clip the second bolt and move slightly left then up. Eventually reach the large ledge that isn't nearly as good as it looks. Shake here, move up on some less than solid rock and clip the 4th bolt and pull a final 5.11 sequence before reaching easier ground and sharper rock before the anch...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
