This is a new crag located on the back side of Diablo Mesa, the same Mesa with the Solar Cave and Winter Wall, just the northeast aspect. The climbing starts where you see a large detached pinnacle that, between it and the walls, forms a nice little valley to hang out and watch the sports action.
The crag is not visible from the road. Drive past the main Diablo parking area and when you are about to pass Diablo Mesa all together, look for a pullout on either right or left side of the road in arroyos.

I felt this climb, just left of Fire on the Mountain, was the best fully bolted climb at the Shack under 5.12. Good rock, and a sustained crux on a tricky arÍte made it rewarding. The slab face passing the last couple of bolts has some lichen but it's no big deal....[more] Browse More Classics in NM
