The upper wall with only seven routes. Warm up area for those strong enough for the Big Horn Wall. Shade is always prevalent. Killer Bees on the left, don't get swarmed. If anyone gets stung, run far and fast. Bees inject you with a pheremone that marks you as a target for the rest of the bees to attack.

Getting There 

Short hike but a little steep.

I think this is the easiest route on the wall although Wounded Knee is rated lower. Crux is low above the 2nd bolt. Look for the many rests and plan to fight the pump up at the finish. Watch for the Killer Bee hive to your left....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

The bees seem to be most active when its warm out. If you want to climb on this wall, the bees are less active on the coldest days. Alternatively, even on warm days, the bees are less active in the am before it warms up too much, and in the late afternoon.
