Description 

Four easy routes on the wall allow access to the upper terrace routes.


Getting There 

The Headwall is a northwest-facing cliff band that lies south of a large boulder (the chipmunk) where the summit trail reaches a saddle. Hike up a climber's path to the base of the cliff.

Spice Box 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- E2 5b  AZ : Central Arizona : ... : The Headwall
I liked the first bolt on pitch two, it protects groundfall potential on a ramp and the 3rd bolt is on great rock for clipping. Right after that it gets steep and cruxy.
