BETA PHOTO: Headwall routes.

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
About to gain the big ledge below the upper headwall.

Nguvu 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ E5 6a  NM : Jemez Valley Area : ... : The Amphitheater
Pull through a short bit of typical-for-UEF chunky rock down low using some nice, solid huecos for three bolts to a big ledge. Traverse right and up on the ledge to clip another bolt and swing out left on steep rock but with big holds. Continue up trending right past a couple more bolts to a pronounced, hard to read crux on overhanging rock in a green streak. Finish in a small left-facing corner and crack. ...[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?
