This west and north facing wall has a ton of long routes and you will want to take your 70M rope. More orange in color the wall is steep and over 100 feet tall. It has the highest concentration of quality 5.11 and 5.12 routes at the Homestead. Bring a lot of draws and some endurance.

With only a few 5.10 climbs the wall sees little visitation by moderate teams.

The north end dubbed the North Buttress and separated on this site has a ton of good climbs also.

Getting There 

From the drainage continue past Slate Nation's trail to the left. A bit farther on you will find two or three large saguaro cactus on the right side of the drainage. A cairn marks the steep but short hike to the base of the wall.

MR getting past the crux and into a big stem!

Morning Mate 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : Rough Rider Wall
Crux it out on the enticing arete that splits the rough rider wall and the north buttress. Flow up another 30 feet to a small dihedral and roof feature. Crux it out again over this and then cruise it to the anchors. A stellar route - poised to be a classic! Thanks Aaron for putting in the time and work to put this one up!...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
