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.

Mothership Connection is the sweet tufa route up the gently overhanging face left of the Bronco Bowl and right of Time For Livin'. Begin by scrambling up the large flake/left-facing corner in the center of the Outrage Wall. From the teetering blocks on the top of this flake, reach up and clip the first bolt. Don't be confused by the left-hand bolt line which is British Invasion (12a).The first pitch is 11d, 100' long, and leads to a semi-hanging belay at a stance below the tufas.
