Description 

The Tombstone area is home to a good selection of moderate lines. The cliff faces west, and is rather short. Most of the routes are quite diminutive, though there are a couple of moderate length climbs. The shorter lines on the right end of the wall begin up on a sloping tier, and generally ascend a steeper section at the bottom before slabbing out.

The canyon's easiest routes are found here, but many of the lines require powerful sequences, so this may not be the best choice for beginners.

Additionally there is a BEE HIVE on the south end of the cliff. Considering the proximity to Sitting Bull Falls, its seems plausible that these may be KILLER BEES.

Getting There 

Continue up-canyon for 200 yds past the Santa Fe Wall. This is the furthest up-canyon crag at LCC. The cliff is on the South/west side of the canyon.
