Description 

A big, tall and impressive wall with many steep routes. It's slowly becoming a destination area on its own and certainly worth a gander for UEF visitors. Some sections down low include dubious rock between decent holds and rock.


Getting There 

This wall is upstream of where the approach trail enters the valley about 200 yards upstream from Brier Patch (Creek Wall). Cross the creek on the bridge/downed tree near the Brier Patch (Creek Wall) and head upstream staying high on a bench above the creek when necessary. This wall is the first huge wall you'll come to. It faces southeast so it sees sun until mid to late afternoon.

Featured Route For The Amphitheater
Allison meeting Mr. Dubious for the first time. March 6, 2010.

Mr. Dubious 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : The Amphitheater
Low crux through finger pockets then cruise through easier (5.9-5.10) climbing to the top. Route tends slightly right. A great deal of time and effort was spent cleaning this route and the immediate surrounding area. It is new and as Jason stated much of the rock on this wall is dubious and might pull off- especially if you wander off route into uncleaned areas on this wall. This route is a good warm up for the harder head wall routes to the right. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

It looks like there are four routes up the roof containing 5.9 and Dribble Glass. Does anyone know what the other two are?
