Description 

Beautiful wall with continuously steep, overhanging, FUN, long, and relentless routes. Enjoy!

Getting There 

Follow the directions to Schoolhouse Slab, look up and right, slightly southeast from the corridor, and behold a tall, overhung chunk of rock. Large ponderosa pine on the right end of the wall.

Jenna nearing the anchors where the holds finally get a bit bigger.

Stroke Me 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  NM : El Rito : ... : Rad Wall
Great continuous jug haul with a few non-juggy holds and big reaches thrown in. Climb fast and shake out when you can! Harder than Bolting Barbie, easier than Crack Attack. Beware the sucker-chalked jug up top. Yet another Rad Wall classic!...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

The route listed on the topo as unknown 5.9 is actually Slacker Ken. It has recently been bolted.

Rad Wall is the finest wall at El Rito, and stays dry in the rain (or snow).

I put together a time lapse of a couple hours of climbing on the Rad Wall today. Thought I'd share it here.
