West facing, tall wall boasting a few good, long moderates. It's the first major wall you'll see on the left as you approach from the parking area.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, hike the approach trail until it tops out and starts to descend a bit. Turn left before the approach trail descends and the wall will be looming over you.

Non-descript, but worth doing once...The online guide gives this one a .9[First clip is definitely the crux. After that the grade drops significantly. Nice climbing above, big pockets, a bit run-out from bolt 2 to 3, but nothing hazardous because the climbing is easy.]...[more]   Browse More Classics in NM

The unknown / unfinished 12d at the far left side of this wall, felt really hard (harder than 12d) and is complete choss. Many of the holds felt like they were going to break when pulled on. There was chalk on it though, anyone know if this has been sent?

Found a blackdiamond quickdraw on Number Two Red on 8/1. Silver carabiner for rock side, orange carabiner for ropeside and a brown dogbone. White sport tape on the silver carabiner. If this is yours drop a comment and we can coordinate getting your gear back :-)
