Another fine grouping of problems, on a beautiful long wall. Though mostly V0s, some of these lines are steep, and some of these lines are totally unique.

Getting There 

From the dirt road just past the store where you would go to the NPR wall and Boozepig wall, drive .9 miles further east on Lake Mary road (Or, about a mile from the store). Park on north side of the road (opposite the lake) and look for a faint trail leading up the gravely hillside. Look for a cairn here, but no others. Basically hike uphill zig zagging on elk trails but keep a straight uphill mark. Soon you will come across a decent sized wall below the main cliffband. Go left and up around this wall through a small drainage and you will see the Workshop wall. The Widowmaker wall is just to right via a decent little trail. You will know them when you seem them.

Featured Route For The Workshop and Widow Maker Walls

Split the Difference V4 6B  AZ : Northern Arizona : ... : The Workshop wall
A Flagstaff classic for the grade, Split the Difference starts out at the large, deep tan hueco, below a subtle tan streak. Move up from the hueco to an obvious slopey, slanty finger bucket directly above the Hueco. Another crimp, much less obvious than the first sits directly above by about a foot. Move out left to a deep three finger pocket, a few more good holds, and jugs at the top.A classic for grade hands down. Tall, beautiful, a great top out, and a great landing.

It's been nearly 15 years, but I remember we were calling one of these walls "The Wave Wall" because of its unique appearance.
