Head north from Abreu and quickly bear to the northeast, away from Aguila Camp and toward Stone Wall Pass. At about the 2-mile point, begin climbing sharply for 1/2 mile up to Stone Wall Pass (your high point for the day).
Bear right at the next two trail junctions and descend easily for the next 1-1/2 mile. At the 4-mile point, begin contouring to the northeast and pass Lovers Leap at 5 miles.
Descend from Lover Leap for a mile to Lovers Leap Turnaround, then climb to the west for 1-1/2 miles, past the Stockade, to Stockade Ridge Camp.
On the Way
There are no staffed camps after Abreu.
At about 2-1/2 miles, cross Stone Wall Pass with views of Urraca Mesa above to the east.
At about 5 miles, pass Lovers Leap with rocks to scramble over and views into South Fork Urraca Creek canyon.
Near the 2-1/2 mile point, you could take the trail to the left instead of the right. It saves neither time nor distance and adds two short road walks.
Itinerary 1 - day 11
