Description 

An amazing wall with great winter sun all afternoon. Nearly all of the climbing is steep with some routes that are intensely overhanging. The rock is good quality limestone and bolted for your pleasure. At the Outrage wall you will find everything: Jugs, crimps, TUFAS, pockets, huecos, you name it. The difficulties start at mid-eleven and go into the thirteens with many open projects still remaining.

Getting There 

After walking into the canyon continue past the tin pavilion onto the dirt road, across the cattle guard with the annoying gatekeeper, and look up right past The Spires. Hike uphill on whatever trail you find (there are many) passing The Spires on their right for about 10 minutes until you get to the obvious steep, streaked wall. You really cant miss it. Its, in fact, outrageous.

On-sighting the amazing 2nd pitch of "Devil's Cabana Boy", left side.  On the right side the climbers are at the third belay of "Time for Livin".

Devil's Cabana Boy 5.13- 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E7 6c  North America : Mexico : ... : Outrage Wall Proper
NOTE: I have only done the first pitch so please hijack this description if you have done more. Pitch 1 has a little bit of everything and is solid mid-11. It begins up large tufas and goes over a roof then up to a rather delicate slab finish (crux). This was likely my favorite single pitch during my week in Potrero. The second pitch looks brilliant and goes up the "tufa chandelier" at 12+. The rest goes at hard 12 or low 13....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
