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.
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.

The climb starts with some techy moves then eases up for a bit with some fun movement to a roof in the middle of the route, here the difficulty increases, pull through this roof then up some more techy face climbing to some good holds. Try to recover here as the climbing gradually becomes more inverted to a second roof at the top of the wall, pull this roof and make a couple moves to the anchors. Probably want a 70m rope, though it looks like a 60m will barely get you down....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
