The more southern areas of The Box. Some of the walls face south for good winter climbing. Several routes among the walls with grades ranging from moderate to advanced. Like the rest of Box, most of the routes are equipped with bolts with some taking occasional pro.
From the northern areas main parking, continue on the dirt road crossing a wash and south for about a mile up the hill. You will eventually get to a point where the road tops the hill and splits. Take the left hand (downhill and more travelled) branch. There is a turnaround down near the cattle guard. There is a trail just north of the cattle guard to access Unbeatable, Harmonica Convention, Tres Hermanas, etc. Keep going back North on the road to closer to the top of the hill again to find a trail to Major Wall, Pocket Change, Alcohol Wall, etc.
